Olivia Wilde’s next film, Don’t Worry Darling, is a slow burn thriller complete with some of the most good-looking people in showbiz getting down and dirty. Wilde described it as the equivalent of “The Feminine Mystique on acid,” inspired by psycho-sexual spine-chillers like Fatal Attraction and Indecent Proposal. The film tells the story of a 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community, as she begins to fret that his company, perfect as it may seem, is hiding disturbing private affairs.
Don’t Worry Darling is Wilde’s second turn as director following 2019’s entertaining high school comedy Booksmart.
