Don’t Worry Darling: A Review


After months of following the Don’t Worry Darling drama, it turned out to be a genuinely enjoyable movie.

Despite Harry Styles spitting on Chris Pine and months following the drama of the now released film Don’t Worry Darling, it turned out to be a genuinely decent and enjoyable movie. Although many reviews did not do it justice, it truly kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, and I believe everyone should get a chance to see it. The whole cast did an amazing job keeping me wrapped up in the story and subtly adding things that were major to the plot.

The movie follows 1950s couple Alice Chambers (Florence Pugh) and Jack Chambers (Harry Styles) and their ideal “perfect society.” Alice’s only worry is shopping, cooking, cleaning, and tending to her husband, while Jack’s only worry is making money and going to work every day. When Alice begins to question things about her life such as the “Victory Project,” things take a turn for the worst while some disturbing secrets are revealed along with a major plot twist. 

Little Women and Black Widow actress Florence Pugh was absolutely amazing throughout the film. Whatever they were paying her — double it. She was absolutely phenomenal, and she really had a way of keeping me on edge while watching. I hope she does more films like this soon! 

Although it was not Harry Styles’ first acting job, it was his first lead role, and I think he did amazing (to be clear, this is completely unbiased). There were definitely some things he could work on, but it’s a great start for him and his acting career. I can’t wait to see what other movies he’ll be in next! 

Overall, it was a really enjoyable film, and it made me question some things of my own when I was done watching it. Being a “psychological thriller,” you’re left thinking about the movie for days after and slowly putting together the small details hidden throughout the movie. As I previously stated, the reviews did not do this movie justice, and you really need to go see it for yourself. 

Note — the movie does have some disturbing scenes, so younger viewers would be well-advised to ask their parents’ permission before watching.
