'Don't Worry Darling' Movie Review
Florence Pugh’s feeling paranoid in Olivia Wilde’s ‘Don’t Worry Darling’. Wilde follows up the jokey, warm ‘Booksmart’ with this psychological thriller, which features a stand-out performance from Pugh.
Releasing in theaters this week, Olivia Wilde’s ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ has been dogged by behind-the-scenes and tabloid drama, but the movie itself stands apart from all of that and proves that her debut, ‘Booksmart’, was no fluke. And the new film is a very, very different beast from that initial offering, swapping charming, warm coming-of-age antics and slapstick humor for paranoia, gaslighting and a theme that would feel right at home in a thriller from the 1970s.
