You can stop worrying, darling. After a lengthy and headline-making promotional tour, director Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling finally made its box-office debut back in September and now, months later, the drama is finally available to stream at home.
More from Rolling Stone
Set in the Fifties in a picturesque Palm Springs-like suburban town called Victory, the thriller stars Oscar nominee Florence Pugh and Rolling Stone cover star Harry Styles as husband and wife Alice and Jack, and it’s already become one of the most talked-about films of the year, complete with an action-packed plot and a twist that’ll leave you thinking about the movie for days.
Though audiences had to wait years to see the film in theaters, there was no shortage of viral moments to keep fans entertained leading up to its release. From #SpitGate (no, Chris Pine, who plays Styles’ boss Frank in the movie, says Styles didn’t spit on him at the Venice Film Festival), to well … where do we begin? (Go listen to Rolling Stone‘s podcast Don’t Let This Flop, for starters.) Styles even joked about the Venice drama during a show at Madison Square Garden, telling the crowd, “It is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back here. I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.”
And if you’re still having trouble keeping up with all the Don’t Worry Darling drama, take a few deep breaths and don’t stress too much: Rolling Stone‘s CT Jones has a complete timeline that you can read before you grab your popcorn and take a seat.
But now, for the the main event, here’s how you can still get tickets to see the new movie in theaters, plus how you can stream it at home online.

Don’t Worry Darling Cast, Plot
So what is Don’t Worry Darling about exactly?
According to the movie’s synopsis, “Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) are lucky to be living in the idealized 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.”
But soon, Pugh’s character Alice starts to wonder if life in Victory might not be all it’s made out to be, or worse.
“Without saying too much about where Don’t Worry Darling is headed, things are definitely not what they seem, and the feeling that you’re in the middle of Black Mirror episode set in some alternate version of, say, Branson, Missouri, begins to overwhelm you even more than the midcentury mood-board decor porn,” Rolling Stone‘s David Fear writes in our movie review.
Other Victory residents and visitors include a cast featuring Wilde, Gemma Chan, KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll, Asif Ali, Douglas Smith, Sydney Chandler, Timothy Simons, and Kate Berlant.
