Not everything is what is seems in the life of Alice and Jack Chambers. In Don’t Worry Darling, Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack (Harry Styles) are lucky to be living in the idealised community of Victory, the 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 (Chris 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 (Gemma 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 can’t help questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why. 

While attending a party hosted by Frank, Alice sees something she shouldn’t have. Just how much is she willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in this paradise?

Don’t Worry Darling is screening at both Ballina Fair Cinema and Palace Cinema in Byron Bay this week.
