    Don’t Worry Darling Review: Should we worry about Olivia Wilde’s new movie?

    Published on

    The first reviews are in, and they’re mixed

    Early reviews for Don’t Worry Darling starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles are out, and it is mostly mixed. The psychological thriller is directed by Olivia Wilde and has been trending a lot in the past year.

    Don’t Worry Darling Review

    Don't Worry Darling
    Warner Bros.

    Don’t Worry Darling tells the story of Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles), a couple that takes part in Victory, an experimental project that involves the “development of progressive materials.” The couple is appealed by the glamour, comfort, and traditional family roles it offers. But soon, the perfection that the project offers become more and more strange, and those who took part start displaying strange symptoms. But the main fault with Don’t Worry Darling could be that it keeps on repeating the same point about gender politics of men having the time of their lives while women are second-class citizens who have to make dinner, shop, and gossip. It doesn’t progress from that.

    The movie does a good job of reminding us why the past should not be romanticized. But after seeing Alice, whose doubts regarding her husband grow stronger with every minute, keep repeating the events of getting gaslit, concerned, and everything in between, one can quickly get tired of the plot. It almost feels like the movie wants to pat itself on the back for all the shallow messages of empowerment and subjugation it showed, without having us feel anything for the characters.

    Conclusion

    Don't Worry Darling
    Warner Bros.

    Pugh does the best with what she’s given, but this is no role for her to try something new. Meanwhile, Styles’ acting still feels off, and their combined scenes fall flat. But we keep feeling that the movie had some great ideas, but failed to execute them. In conclusion, Don’t Worry Darling is a half-done movie that fails to move the audience.
