Looking for something to watch in theaters for this spooky season? “Don’t Worry Darling,” a psychological thriller/horror directed by Olivia Wilde with main leads Florence Pugh and Harry Styles is a must-see. This film is perfect for those who like thrillers, suspense, built up tension, psychological motives and mysteries. “Don’t Worry Darling” is two hours and three minutes long, and is rated R for language, violence content and sexuality. This film takes place in the 1950s in a “perfect” town called Victory. While the men work on a secret project, their wives stay home in luxury. The film focuses on the couple Alice and Jack Chambers, played by Florence Pugh and Harry Styles. While Alice is home cooking, cleaning and going out, she starts to see sinister cracks in her reality that lead her to question what she and Jack are really doing in Victory. The cast’s performance was fantastic, drawing the viewers in, and making us question the characters’ motives. I simply could not look away from the screen. Though this film didn’t receive the greatest reviews on sites such as Rotten Tomatoes or IMDb, this has been one of the best films I’ve seen all year. From the talented cast, satisfying cinematography, and the unexpected plot twists, viewers throughout the film question what is really going on. Even walking out of the theater my friends and I were discussing what we thought happened, what was going to happen, and how paranoid the film made us. Even now I’m reflecting on this film trying to connect the dots. This film was highly anticipated when it first came out, and I can see why. While it has been popular, I think the main reason being is that it caught attention from the public because of all the speculations around the drama behind the scenes of the film with director Olivia Wilde and lead actress Florence Pugh. Other reviewers were not too happy with Styles’ acting performance either. This was Styles’ first major role since “Dunkirk” and his ending credit scene in “Eternals.” Besides all the negative comments about the drama behind the scenes and Styles’ acting, which I would say was rather welldone, I believe the film had no major errors to which I would complain about. Overall, “Don’t Worry Darling,” was an amazing film to have watched, and I urge all to see it. I would give it a five out of five-star rating.
