Life is perfect, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is 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 what they’re doing in Victory, and why. Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in paradise?”
While at CinemaCon, Wilde has stated she was inspired by Fatal Attraction and Indecent Proposal for the sexuality of the film as well as Inception, The Matrix and The Truman Show. She calls Don’t Worry Darling, “a love letter to movies that push the boundaries of our imagination.”
“I want you to imagine a life where you have everything you could want,” Wilde said. “Not just material, tangible things… like a beautiful house, perfect weather and gorgeous cars. But also the things that really matter, like true love or the perfect partner or real trusted friendships and a purpose that feels meaningful.”
