For this episode we’re talking about Don’t Worry Darling, the new movie from director Olivia Wilde. The movie stars Florence Pugh as Alice, a 1950’s housewife living in an idyllic community with her husband, played by Harry Styles. But when strange occurrences involving her husband’s secretive job start happening, Alice begins to question the nature of the reality she’s living in.
Our ATMI film critics got together on Zoom to talk about Don’t Worry Darling, the themes it explores, the film’s heavily stylized elements, and all of the behind the scenes drama that has plagued the movie’s promotional tour. Did Harry Styles really spit on Chris Pine? We may never know the truth.
Roundtable led by Roey McCowan.
