A high voltage dystopia drama with great performances that is worth checking out

At the premiere, Don’t Worry Darling was talked about more because of the gossip generated by the actors and director than about the film itself.

Despite expectations, the box office ‘do not worry, honey’, which just arrived on HBO Max and climbed to the top of the platform’s most-watched charts globally, was hugely satisfying: a modest 35 million budget translated to 87.6 million at the worldwide box office. However, the general feeling due to the controversy sparked by its troubled portrayal is that it was a failure for Warner.

The film has been making headlines since 2021 due to conflicting filming. Director Olivia Wilde has fired Shia LaBeouf over problematic behavior involving co-star Florence Pugh. LaBeouf was replaced by Wilde’s then-partner, Harry Styles, and the director reportedly clashed with the temperamental Pugh. Soon after, several members of the production declared that these were baseless rumors and left everything in doubt It could be rumors coming from Styles’ fan circles (!).

Anyway, the film is a wonderful suburban dystopia that uses the traditions of the community American way of life And nostalgia for the glorious decades of the American past to give us a violent and emotional tale with a surprise ending. Florence Pugh and Chris Pine are particularly attuned to this story about a 1950s housewife who lives with her husband in an experimental, utopian community led by a charismatic leader. Every day her husband leaves for secret work, but the woman begins to doubt this perfect happiness.

With a rabid feminist message, the film ties into a historical subgenre of dystopian science fiction, which makes use of neighborhood life. To denounce the shame of consumer society. Olivia Wilde fits perfectly into the spirit of classics like The Stepford Sisters, and she does so thanks to an extraordinary balance of almost aesthetics. Fashion movie And poison imaginary forever.
