Few movies have received more press for things that had nothing to with the movie than Don’t Worry Darling. There were rumors of inappropriate behavior on the set, plenty of tension, and poor Chris Pine sitting in the middle of it all. When the press tour quieted down, though, folks actually got to see the movie, and reactions were mixed. Some people praised the movie’s original ideas and strong performances, while others were confused about how a movie with such an exciting press tour could be so dull in execution.
The movie, which tells the story of a young housewife living in an idyllic small town in the desert of California who discovers that everything in her world is not as it seems, definitely has echoes of films like The Truman Show. It was directed by Olivia Wilde, who also acts in the movie alongside a cast that also includes Black Widow‘s Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Gemma Chan (Sersi from Marvel’s Eternals), and Nick Kroll.
While reactions were mixed when the movie hit theaters, plenty of people didn’t see the movie at all when it was released theatrically. Those folks may be wondering how they can best catch up with it now that it’s mostly left theaters.
Don’t Worry Darling will be on HBO Max on November 7
Anyone who missed Don’t Worry Darling in theaters won’t have to wait much longer. The movie is set to hit HBO Max on November 7, and when it does, it should be available to stream there for some time. The exact streaming window isn’t clear, but most new movies that hit HBO Max stay there for at least a month, which should give existing HBO Max subscribers plenty of time to catch up with it.
