Things Get Tense in New Clip from Don’t Worry Darling
Published 3 weeks ago
Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling had premiered at the Venice Film Festival, but the behind-the-scenes drama managed to get more attention than the actual movie, which is set to hit theaters later this month.
Just in, we have a new clip from the film which has Florence Pugh’s character Alice slowly unravelling during a dinner party. Watch this:
Here’s the official plot description:
Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) 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. The 1950’s societal optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank (Pine)—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?
Though we’ve already seen Pugh become subject to an odd community in Midsommar, a lot of people are curious about Chris Pine, who is probably best known for his more charismatic role as Kirk in Star Trek. Here he’s going to be taking on the more villainous role, which should be interesting to watch him in.
If anything, a lot of people could be walking into this movie with the whole drama between Wilde and Pugh in mind. Twitter was just abuzz with the issue for an entire week that it just puts every scene in a whole different context.
Then again, that’s just my speculation. I was already excited for the film before the drama blew up online.
Don’t Worry Darling is set to release in theaters this coming Sept. 23.
