From New Line Cinema comes “Don’t Worry Darling”, directed by Olivia Wilde (“Booksmart”) and starring Florence Pugh (Oscar nominated for “Little Women”), Harry Styles (“Dunkirk”), Gemma Chan ( “Crazy & Rich”), KiKi Layne (“The Old Guard”) and Chris Pine (“All the Old Knives”).
Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) live in the idealized community of Victory, the experimental corporate town that houses the men working on the top-secret Victory project and their families. The optimism of the society of the 1950s, advocated by CEO Frank (Pine) – equally corporate visionary and motivational life coach – characterizes every aspect of daily life in the close-knit utopia of the desert.
While husbands spend each day inside the Victory Project headquarters, working on “advanced materials development,” their wives – including Frank’s elegant companion Shelley (Chan) – can spend their time enjoying the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their community. Life is perfect, with all the needs of the residents satisfied by the company. All they ask for in return is discretion and undisputed commitment to Victory’s cause.
But when cracks start to appear in their idyllic life, showing glimpses of something far more sinister lurking beneath the attractive facade, Alice can’t help but wonder exactly what they’re doing to Victory, and why. How much is Alice willing to lose to reveal what is really happening in this paradise?
Bold, twisted and visually stunning psychological thriller, “Don’t Worry Darling” is a powerful film from director Olivia Wilde that boasts the intoxicating performances of Florence Pugh and Harry Styles, surrounded by an impressive and perfect cast.

Wilde directs a screenplay written by his “Booksmart” author Katie Silberman, based on a story by Carey Van Dyke & Shane Van Dyke (“Chernobyl Diaries”) and Silberman. The film is produced by Wilde, Silberman, Miri Yoon and Roy Lee, with Richard Brener, Celia Khong, Alex G. Scott, Catherine Hardwicke, Carey Van Dyke and Shane Van Dyke executive producing.
