Don’t Worry Darling is a sci-fi drama and psychological thriller set in the 1950s, centering a married couple living in a utopian style community called Victory. Florence Pugh (Black Widow) stars as Alice, a young house wife to her husband Jack (Harry Styles), who works for Victory. In the opening scene of the film we meet the rest of the community including house wives Bunny (Olivia Wilde), Shelley (Gemma Chan), Peg (Kate Berlant) and their husbands. Victory is controlled by Shelley’s husband Frank (Chris Pine), who makes the rules and and runs the “Victory Project.”

Extravagant parties, wealth, picture perfect families, and symbolic meals, Don’t Worry Darling captures the desire and fascination surrounding the concept of the “perfect” life. The film shows the inhumane lengths one will take to achieve this perfect life. The eeriness and tension grow and grow as the truth unravels and we discover this “normal” life is far from normal.

As the film progresses, Alice evolves from the typical Victory housewife, drinking cocktails by the pool while waiting for her husband to come home, to a skeptical witness of many unsettling events. Alice takes what she saw and begins to question everything. No one believes Alice so she takes matters into her own hands.

Dark, twisted, and deceitful, this film is a great watch that has you solving a mystery during the film and when it is over. The “Victory Project” will have you thinking.
