In a new clip from Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!,” Michelle Pfeiffer’s character taunts Jennifer Lawrence’s protagonist about not wanting to have kids.

“Why don’t you want kids?” she probes. “I saw how you reacted earlier. I know what it’s like when you are just starting out and thinking you have all the time in the world. You are not going to be so young forever. Have kids. And you’ll be creating something together. This is all just setting.”

Upon seeing her face, Pfeiffer says, “Oh, you do want them.”

The new clip ends with a jarring sequence of creepy scenes from the movie that also stars Javier Bardem and Ed Harris. The Paramount Pictures drama reveals how a couple’s (Lawrence and Bardem) relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. However, it soon becomes apparent that Bardem isn’t as shocked about the eerie strangers as Lawrence is.

“mother!” was written and directed by Aronofsky (“Black Swan”), who co-produced with Scott Franklin and Ari Handel.

“mother!” will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival and hit theaters Sept. 15.
