Apparently Harry Styles was right, Don’t Worry Darling really *is* a real, you know, go-to-the-theatre film movie.
When was it?
Wednesday 21 September
Where was it?
The Stella Cinema in Rathmines, Dublin.
Why were we there?
The 50s-themed reception at the Stella drew a great crowd of eager movie buffs for the premiere of the highly anticipated Don’t Worry Darling. As we know all too well, there ended up being quite a considerable amount of worry, darling, happening behind the scenes and on the press tour for the film’s release. We’ve unpacked it previously — which you can read here — but it seems like there are new developments happening constantly.
In all the consternation, the actual plot of the film largely got swept under the rug. Don’t Worry Darling stars Florence Pugh, Harry Styles and Chris Pine – with Olivia Wilde in the director’s chair – and is set in 1950s America… more specifically, in the idealised community of Victory, an experimental company town that houses the men who work on a top-secret project. While the husbands toil away, the wives get to enjoy the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their seemingly perfect paradise. However, when cracks in her idyllic life begin to appear, exposing flashes of something sinister lurking below the surface, Alice (Pugh) can’t help but question exactly what she’s doing in Victory.
Who was there?
Film (and Harry Styles) fans were out in force on the night to catch a glimpse of the movie that’s caused all the fuss. Among them, there were social media influencers, podcasters and plenty of familiar Irish faces you might just recognise.
Spotted on the red carpet on the night were Brendan Courtney, Lorraine Keane, Miss Ireland Ivanna McMahon, Katja Mia, Stephen Byrne, Tracy Clifford as well as Laura Fox and Emma Power.
