Why watch this film?
It's curious how the troubled backstage of 'Don't Worry Darling' has slowly become more interesting and talked about than the movie itself. And it's sad too. After all, the feature film is a competent production that gracefully achieves the quality of a feminist and modern dystopia. Directed by Olivia Wilde ('Booksmart'), the feature film tells the story of a strange 1950s community, where a woman (Florence Pugh, absolutely brilliant) begins to question everything around her and the reality in which she lives, as well as her husband (Harry Styles). It's a movie with a strong social commentary, about oppression and the role of women. The weakest point of the feature film, unfortunately, is the idea. The script, signed by the trio Katie Silberman, Carey Van Dyke and Shane Van Dyke, starts from the essence of Plato's cave myth, where people live in a world of shadows until they question what lies behind it. Something already beaten, very explored. In addition, Harry Styles is not well on screen and, when necessary, he cannot reach the necessary dramatic climax. However, there are some interesting elements. First and above all: Florence Pugh. The actress is a sensation, an event. Even in moments that the script does not favor her, she manages to find a way to shine. In addition, although much of the film skates because of this obvious and beaten base, the last 30 minutes are exciting. After all, it is there that Olivia Wilde finds space to leave the audience tense. Even though everyone knows how things unfold, the filmmaker and the script can go anywhere in the last second. It can be life or death, joy or sadness; celebration or mourning. And that's where 'Don't Worry Darling' shows its power, its strength and how, despite everything, it is a good feature film.
