Jennifer Lawrence has been in the news a lot lately, mainly because her new movie Mother! is the first movie in quite awhile to either earn lavish praise or hellish scorn. I’ve read about 15 non spoiler reviews of Mother! (I still really want to see it) and there is no middle ground when it comes to people’s feelings on it. Her follow up to Mother! will be Red Sparrow, a thriller helmed by her Hunger Games: Catching Fire & Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 director Francis Lawrence. Jennifer just turned 27 last month, so it appears she has a lengthy acting career in front of her, and I’m glad to see her taking roles like Mother! and Red Sparrow. It’d be easy for her to embrace the America’s Sweetheart role that everyone seems to want her to play and only do happy go lucky movies, but she’s so versatile that it’d be a shame for her not to switch things up once in awhile. Red Sparrow premieries March 2, 2018.
