Florence Pugh confirmed to attend Venice World Premiere For ‘Don’t Worry Darling’
New Line Cinema’s anticipated psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling was confirmed for an Out of Competition slot at the Venice Film Festival (August 31 – Sep 10) and the studio has confirmed that director Olivia Wilde and stars Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Gemma Chan and Chris Pine will tread the red carpet.
Wilde’s sophomore feature follows Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) who seem lucky to be living in the idealized community of Victory, an experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families. The 1950s societal optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank (Pine)—equal parts corporate visionary and motivational life coach—anchors every aspect of daily life in the tight-knit desert utopia.
While the husbands spend every day inside the Victory Project Headquarters, working on the “development of progressive materials,” their wives—including Frank’s elegant partner, Shelley (Chan)—get to spend their time enjoying the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their community. Life is perfect, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and unquestioning commitment to the Victory cause.
But when cracks in their idyllic life begin to appear, exposing flashes of something much more sinister lurking beneath the attractive façade, Alice finds herself questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why.
