Don’t Worry, Darling About
Don’t Stress The fictional company town of Victory, which houses the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families, is the setting for the story of Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack (Harry Styles). The tight-knit desert utopia’s CEO, Frank (Chris Pine), who serves as both a corporate visionary and a motivational life coach, espouses the optimism of the 1950s. This optimism serves as the foundation for all aspects of daily life.
While their husbands toil away at the “development of progressive materials” inside the Victory Project Headquarters, their wives, including Frank’s partner Shelley (Gemma Chan), get to spend their time taking in the splendor, luxury, and vice of their neighborhood. Every resident’s needs are met by the company, making life ideal. They only ask for discretion and unwavering dedication to the Victory cause in exchange.
Alice, however, can’t help but wonder exactly what they are doing in Victory and why when cracks in her picture-perfect life start to show, revealing glimpses of something much more sinister lurking beneath the alluring façade. How much is Alice willing to sacrifice in order to reveal the truth about the true nature of this paradise?
Don’t Worry Darling had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival this year and was made available on September 23 by Warner Bros. Carey, Shane, and Silberman’s story was the basis for the script that Wilde directed, which was written by Katie Silberman. KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll, Sydney Chandler, Kate Berlant, Asif Ali, Douglas Smith, Timothy Simons, and Ari’el Stachel are also featured in the movie. Richard Brener, Celia Khong, Alex G. Scott, Catherine Hardwicke, Carey Van Dyke, and Shane Van Dyke served as executive producers alongside Wilde, Silberman, Miri Yoon, and Roy Lee on the production team.
Wilde’s most recent project as a director was more marred by scandal than any movie in recent memory, with rumors of tension between Wilde and Pugh on the set circulating. Although Wilde refuted them, there were also conflicting accounts of Shia LaBeouf’s reasons for leaving the role that would eventually be played by Styles, which created intrigue.
There was even a viral video clip from Venice that some claimed showed Styles spitting on his co-star Pine. (Pine’s representatives called the latter “ridiculous,” and Wilde also spoke out.) In any case, the movie brought in close to $85M globally, making it a modest success at the box office.
