Described as an audacious, twisted, and visually stunning psychological thriller, Don’t Worry Darling is directed by Olivia Wilde from a screenplay written by Katie Silberman, based on a story by Carey Van Dyke & Shane Van Dyke, and Silberman. It stars Oscar nominee Florence Pugh (Little Women, Midsommar), Harry Styles (Dunkirk), Gemma Chan (Eternals), KiKi Layne (The Old Guard), Chris Pine (All the Old Knives), and Wilde.

“In the film, Alice and Jack are lucky to be living in the idealized community of Victory, the experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families,” reads the synopsis. “The 1950’s societal optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank —equal parts corporate visionary and motivational life coach—anchors every aspect of daily life in the tight-knit desert utopia. While the husbands spend every day inside the Victory Project Headquarters, working on the ‘development of progressive materials,’ their wives—including Frank’s elegant partner, Shelley (Chan)—get to spend their time enjoying the beauty, luxury, and debauchery of their community. Life is perfect, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and unquestioning commitment to the Victory cause.

But when cracks in their idyllic life begin to appear, exposing flashes of something much more sinister lurking beneath the attractive façade, Alice can’t help questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why. Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in this paradise?”
