Staffer leaves theater confused after watching “Don’t Worry Darling”. Suggests waiting for it to come out on streaming rather than paying to see it in the theater.

I walked into the theater excited to see the new Harry Styles’ movie Don’t Worry Darling but walked out feeling terribly confused. Although the cast and acting was phenomenal, I still believe the plot line was a bit messy.

Don’t Worry Darling is set in a fixed reality. Alice (Florence Pugh) and her husband Jack (Harry Styles) live in the town Victory and seem to have the perfect life. The perfect housewives see their perfect husbands off to work every day and greet them with perfect cocktails in hand when they come home every evening but not everything is as perfect as it seems. The men work on a secret project that no one else in town knows about and when Alice begins to see holes in her daily life, she decides to hunt down the answers but finds the unexpected.               

Like I mentioned before, the acting was amazing, you could feel the emotion and get lost in the suspense. Another great feature was the cinematic scenes which I personally believe added character to the movie. However, I spent most of my time trying to understand what was going on. My sister said the same after we left the cinema, and both our boyfriends agreed that though they were able to make sense of it, it was just weird. 

I say, if you enjoy watching horror, thriller, or Harry Styles, go see the movie. If you only like one of those, wait till it comes out on streaming.

Don’t Worry Darling is rated R for sexuality, violent content and language.
