“Don’t Worry Darling” premiered in theaters on Sept. 23rd, 2022, and don’t worry; we watched it, so you don’t have to unless you want to. 


The movie takes place in the 1950s, when women were responsible for cooking and cleaning, while men went to work. In this society, the women are not allowed to leave the suburb, while the men go work at a top-secret location. The society that they all live in is called the Victory Project.


The main character, Alice, was a doctor before she started being amongst the populace in the project. She was constantly working to make ends meet but she loved her job. But, her husband Jack did not have a job and wanted Alice to be home more. One day he started listening to this podcast that discussed a new program that would allow him and Alice to be together all the time, without the stress of working. 


Alice develops a routine of cooking and cleaning until one day she sees a plane crash. She goes out, to a place beyond the suburb. In which she is not allowed to help the plane, but instead, she encounters a mysterious structure on top of a mountain. After touching the structure, she is magically transported into her bed back at her home in the suburbs. She then meets with her friend who also left the boundaries of the suburb. The friend says that they don’t belong in the suburb. This then sends Alice into a psychotic break. 


“Don’t Worry Darling” is a good movie and while it has some hiccups, it is still worth the watch! Just be prepared for all the twists and turns this film takes throughout this 122-minute journey.
