Is Don’t Worry Darling worth watching? Our review:
From the moment the opening credits roll, you know you’re in good hands. Not because you know Don’t Worry Darling is going to be really good, but because you know it’s going to be Look really good. Bathed in sumptuous colors and good enough to eat 1950s fashion, there’s no denying that this is a movie with style. And by the time Ray Charles’s The Right Time kicks off, you know the soundtrack will do the same. Fortunately, with style comes substance, and the entire cast plays its part in this well-paced psychological thriller.
You’ll breathe a sigh of relief to find out that Harry Styles actually plays a Brit in the film (a point they mention that we assume to avoid confusion). But, given that Harry Styles’ English/Northern American accent sounds like no other than Harry Styles, it’s often hard to suspend his disbelief about the pop star. Despite this, he does a good job of holding his own among a cast of seasoned actors.
Florence Pugh was described by Olivia Wilde as the “darling girl” of the film, but she is so much more, delivering a fierce and believable portrayal of Alice throughout. We wouldn’t go so far as to say she’s running the movie, but she’s certainly doing a lot of legwork, showing off her incredible range as she transitions from a perfect ’50s housewife to a woman on the verge of a breakdown. nerves. In addition, she also runs a lot.
While not a particularly new concept (the idyllic mid-century lifestyle draws instant comparisons to The Stepford Wives), Don’t Worry Darling manages to entertain, intrigue and keep audiences on the edge of their seats. And if the story doesn’t seduce you, the costumes, soundtrack, setting, and vintage cars certainly will. Despite all this, reader beware: there are a few moments that will feel a little weird and out of place with the overall style of the film, but thankfully (for reasons you’ll understand when you watch it) these are very few. and far between.
It’s hard these days to justify spending your hard-earned money on a visit to the movies, but if you want to be transported to another place and time (and watch some beautiful people wear beautiful clothes while you’re at it), I’d say it’s money. well spent.
