The new psychological thriller “Don’t Worry Darling” is surrounded by a lot of drama, but it doesn’t all happen on screen. It actually is happening.
The film, starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles as a young married couple who live in an idyllic suburban enclave in the 1950s that isn’t as perfect as it looks, won’t even in theatres until September 23. Aside from if you’re all about Hollywood canoodling, passive-aggressive interviews, celebrity feuds, frigid red-carpet appearances, and macho loogies, filmmaker Olivia Wilde’s film has been the subject of excitement for months.
Not hip to the movie’s various scandals and controversies? Don’t worry, darlings, we’ve got you. Here’s everything you need to know about the drama:

R-rated ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ arrived with a truly saucy trailer
The film’s retro setting and sensuous side were hinted at in the opening clip, which also showed Styles and Pugh’s characters getting intimate in a bedroom and having oral sex on a dining room table. Wilde admitted in a recent interview with The Associated Press that she “had to eliminate some shots” for the trailer because “the MPAA came down hard on me,” but if she had her way, there would have been more.
Pugh, on the other hand, disliked the attention that the hot scenes attracted. (We’ll discuss her other objections later.) In a Harper’s Bazaar cover story, Pugh stated, “It’s not why I’m in this profession.”
In the sensual thriller “Don’t Worry Darling,” Olivia Wilde calls Harry Styles “a revelation.”
In the past year, photos of Wilde and the former member of One Direction holding hands and kissing have led to rumours that they are dating. I won’t comment on it because, according to Wilde, “I’ve never seen a relationship gain from being brought into the public arena.” We both make an effort to keep our relationship safe; I believe this is due to experience as much as genuine love.
