It reads: “Alice (Pugh) and Jack (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 1950’s societal optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank (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 one the ‘development of progressive materials’, their wives - including Frank’s elegant partner, Shelley (Chan) - get to spend their time enjoying the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their community. Life is perfect, with every residents 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 facade, Alice can’t help questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why. Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in this paradise?”

Don’t Worry, Darling goes on to be described as “an audacious, twisted and visually stunning psychological thriller”, which we’re sure will be the talk of the cinematic world once it drops in September.
