Mother! movie quotes provide the dialogue for the psychological horror film about a happy couple who deal with interesting visitors to their home. Darren Aronofsky wrote and directed the movie, which competed at the 74th Venice International Film Festival. Mother! opened theatrically in the United States on September 5, 2017.

In Mother!, Him (Javier Bardem) and Mother (Jennifer Lawrence) live happily in their renovated home where acclaimed author Him struggles to write. One day, Man shows up at their door and asks to stay in one of their rooms. Mother is a bit confused why Him allows a stranger into their home, but goes along with it anyway.

Some time later, Woman, Man's wife, shows up with plans to stay with Man in Him and Mother's home. Mother remains agreeable, but soon grows tired of her house guests. Unfortunately, only more guests arrive, including the Man and Woman's sons and others. This leads Mother to a place of great frustration, one that is only worsened by unsettling visualizations inside the home. 

Mother! was just one of several talked-about movies of 2017 alongside the likes of Wind River, What Happened to Monday, Logan Lucky, and The Hitman's Bodyguard.
