The movie belongs to a thriller genre featuring pop culture stars, Harry Styles and Florence Pugh. The screenplay is written by Katie Silberman who was also the scriptwriter of ‘Booksmart’ and ‘Set It Up’. She is supported by Shane and Carey Van Dyke.

The story is a psychological thriller. A clip from the teaser showcases Pugh in a classic 50s hairstyle. Harry Styles and Florence Pugh reflected a perfect 1950s Californian couple. While Styles was seen wearing two sharp suits – one brown and one navy, Florence is seen in a floral blue wrap dress.
The remaining seconds give running glimpses of a passionate encounter between Style and Pugh who play the roles of partners, Jack and Alice respectively. Another scene reveals Pugh’s face trapped in a plastic bag, gasping and troubling to catch a breath, which definitely hits the thriller corner.
The thriller is centered around a utopian community in the desert of California. Their perfect life, however, takes an unexpected turn. When Alice discovers that her husband, Jack is hiding a dark secret from her. She realizes that her husband’s company is too good to be true. She slowly starts questioning her own sanity upon strange occurrences in her small community. Henceforth, she encounters some unwanted experiences where we are

Don’t Worry Darling: What To Expect?
The film is a psychological thriller. So alongside the romantic and passionate scenes shown in the teaser, the audience can expect some dark thriller insights as well. Also, the feature of pop stars of this generation is a big benchmark itself. While Olivia heartfully thanked the opportunity of working with Harry Styles, she also praised him on social media commenting, “He infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity.’ Wilde has gifted us her ‘Booksmart’ which was a romantic comedy.
