After his film debut with Dunkirk (2017) and then in eternal (2021), Harry Styles appears this week with the theatrical release of Do not worry honey (Don’t Worry Darling). She there she gets into the skin of Jack, a character for which Shia LaBeouf was originally, but, according to Varietywas fired for bad behavior and frequent clashes with Olivia Wilde, the director.

Styles pairs up with Florence Pugh, and shares roles with Wilde herself -the British singer’s real-life girlfriend-, Chris Pine, among others.

Do not worry honey has caused a series of speculations and observations around the images of sex. Hence, Wilde declared at the recent Venice Film Festival where the film premiered: “it is intentionally provocative. I believe in disruption as a necessary tool in society.”

Styles and Pugh portray a married couple residing in a dreamy 1950s-style suburban community that isn’t as ideal as it seems, but lives in a quaint, experimental utopia called Victoria. Pugh plays Alice, a housewife whose reality begins to crack, revealing disturbing truths beneath her seemingly ideal world. Perfect housewives and husbands dedicated to her work stand out, involved in a secret project that no one can talk about, but the apparent calm of the place seems to crack at some point when flashes of something sinister seem to come to mind.

When the trailer for the sci-fi thriller dropped in May, social media went into an uproar thanks to Styles’ character Jack lunging at Alice across a dining room table.

“It’s about immediacy and extreme passion for each other,” Wilde says of the film’s complicated relationship at the heart of the film. “The impractical nature of their sex speaks to their fierce desire for each other. I think it’s an integral part of the story itself and how the audience is supposed to connect with them. My first conversations with the cast were about how the audience has to accept fantasy.”

“As a director, Olivia is incredibly focused. She communicated what she was looking for from the cast with clarity and respect,” says Styles in Variety. “I think the transition from acting to directing has made her a director who knows how to bring out the best in everyone.”

Wilde and Styles have not publicly commented on whether they are a couple, though paparazzi photos have made it clear that they are. “I’m not going to say anything about it because I’ve never seen a relationship benefit from being dragged into the public arena,” says Wilde. “We both do everything we can to protect our relationship. I think it’s from experience, but also from deep love.”

The town of Victoria is a utopia that is presented as an oasis in the desert, but it hides a dark side.

Wilde discussed the inspirations behind the visual choices. “I’ve always been interested in the iconography of the ’50s and ’60s, the music and film of that time, and we thought that was the best way to design Victoria’s world. With screenwriter Katie Silberman, we were interested in focusing on the fact that this happiness existed for a few. With this film everything is a metaphor, Victoria’s paradox is that everything beautiful is also sinister.”.

But it is not only the appearance that makes this imaginary place not as perfect as it seems: “It is a world that is based on many real experiences, for example the Manhattan Project, there is a great fascist iconography, in fact we are talking about power and abuse of power. Chaos is described as something destructive while on the other side we have order and beauty and this is part of an almost dictatorial ideology. I see this as a movie that talks about today, but it doesn’t have a real time. I think it will give rise to debates and reflections, people will ask questions about the role of institutions. It’s entertainment, but we want to generate debate, we think that breakups are fundamental to our society, but it doesn’t have real time. I think it will give rise to debates and reflections, people will ask themselves questions about the role of institutions”, said the filmmaker and actress.

When Styles first spoke about his role in this film – that of a husband who seems to be devoted to family and work – he said, “I think it’s fun to play a character who is in one world but instead it looks so perfect. On set he could do fun things, like drive crazy cars. Victoria’s world was built so realistically that we could pretend it was real. I think in the end we all live in a version of our protected bubble, I think the message of the film is this: what can we give up to do the right thing and get out of the bubble? Many of us are ignorant of what is happening in the world, like in Victoria, and we shouldn’t”.

Pine’s character -Frank- is an unscrupulous and manipulative leader. “The key is language. All of these types of leaders use language as a weapon. Frank is not based on anyone. The image of him is associated with beauty and stupidity. For example, there is a scene where he incites people to a party, with a messianic fervor almost reminiscent of Hitler. The incredible thing is that it is not very different from reality, because it was a way of life at that time. There didn’t have to be too many actors, because the people seem real in what could be our world. The film shows beautiful things that also have a dark side.”details the actor in Collider.
