Don’t Worry Darling: It's all About Style(s)

What do you deserve in life and what are truth and lies anyway? "Don't Worry Darling" addresses precisely these questions. Set against a stylish 50s backdrop, which is also to be understood proverbially here - oh yes, and a certain Harry Styles is also in the game.

Everyone is talking about Harry Styles these days. And so are we – though it’s not just about him this time. We would merely like to mention that the twenty-eight-year-old singer-songwriter and movie director Olivia Wilde have been a couple since shooting Don’t Worry Darling together. We also want to note that this is not the first acting role for Styles, who made his big-screen debut in 2017 in Christopher Nolan’s war drama Dunkirk.

But now, finally, to the film: In this psychological thriller, fifties housewife Alice (Florence Pugh) discovers that she is living in a utopian experiment – reminiscent, in some ways, of the classic The Stepford Wives. Presumably, Don’t Worry Darling will be Harry Styles’s next biggest career moment so far. (Oops, now we’ve gone and made this about him after all!)

"Don't Worry Darling" will be in cinemas from Thursday next week, 22 September 2022.
