Instead of Complicated Alone, Here's The Theory and Mystery About Don't Worry Darling and the Answer

Apart from the chaos regarding the making of the film, which mostly stems from rumors of quarrels between Florence Plugh as the main character and Olivia Wilde as the supporting actor and director, Don’t Worry Darling is a story thriller-fantasy-utopia which is quite interesting to follow.

In general, this is not a bombastic film. The rating is not too high because there are some odd things that spoil the premise. However, it must be admitted that it is quite in demand and has made a profit of up to USD 72 billion worldwide so far.

Don’t Worry Darling Initially, it presented a bubbly and idealistic 1950s household story. It is not clear when and at what time this incident took place. In essence, this film presents the premise of an ideal home life in the city of Victory. Everyone was acting dapper; men go to work and women become happy housekeepers. However, is it that simple?

The City of Victory, in fact, has something darker than that. A secret that if exposed will shatter the dreams of the humans in it, especially the men. There is plot twist The surprising thing and the many strange “hints” certainly raise a lot of questions for anyone, whether you’ve watched it or have just read the review.

Well, what are the confusing things about Don’t Worry Darling and what is the explanation like? Here he is.

What is Victory?

At first, we see Victory as a beautiful utopian city. However, over time, as Alice realizes that many things are wrong around her, we come to know that Victory is a simulated city made by Frank.

This city was made to fulfill the ideal dream, especially for men, to be able to live as a breadwinners, had a submissive wife at home, luxury cars and houses, and a typical 50’s upscale lifestyle. The question is, is Victory a computer simulation or a physical simulation?

This film does not explicitly provide what kind of line separates reality and virtual reality. However, judging by the scene when Jack is rendered unconscious by Jack in the real world, and given some kind of special eye tool, it’s likely that all physical things don’t really exist.

Everything is connected within the Victory network. The users are intertwined in one world when they use the eye tool. It’s like playing a real-life simulation game, isn’t it?

If everything is just a game, why are there guards for?



Whenever Alice begins to remember who she is, there are “Franks” chasing her. These people even gave electric shocks to make Alice forget who she was.

After Alice kills Jack, these people in red uniforms then chase him to Headquarters. If it’s all just in a program connected to the brain network, then why is there a physical pursuit?

It is very likely that these people are just virtual programs that are specifically made to be guards so that people stay in the program. They don’t exist physically, but may be like Agent Smith, the program that is required to keep the humans in the Matrix movies from awakening.

Or, they could be real humans in the real world working for Frank. They put awareness into the program, then keep things on track and there are no violations of the provisions in the program or things that cause bugs.

Is the existence of the Headquarters real?

In the world of Victory, Headquarters seemed like a gateway to the outside world. However, after watching Alice’s real-life scene, we would doubt that. Headquarters may not really exist.

If Victory is likened to a very sophisticated computer program, it is just an Exit button. When the “player” in it hits Headquarters, like when you touch the Exit button in a game, you’re back in the real world.

In Alice’s case, it was very likely that after she touched the glass in Headquarters, her consciousness returned to the real world. He had found the Exit button that had been hidden by Frank and the other players in Victory.

Why are they in the 50-60s?



There is no official answer as to why this film chose the feel of the 50-60s which incidentally is more traditional than today. In fact, it is clear in the real world, they all live in the Internet age (as evidenced by Jack playing the computer and the sophisticated Victory program).

However, if you want to use the theory of matchology, these decades may be appropriate to support the desire of husbands to have submissive wives. You see, those decades are enough to support the husband’s full role as a husband breadwinner and the wives at home. Wealthy couples also often spend time just watching music, having dinner, and swimming.

It is very likely that, when faced with today’s nuances, the desire of husbands to have a wife who is at home and doesn’t question many things will be difficult to achieve. From the Internet, the wives may be suspicious. The nuances of the 50-60s decade that lack the Internet may be considered ideal to make wives not question many things and are curious about many things.

What plane did Alice see?



All of Alice’s suspicions stem from the plane crash. Alice, who in the real world is a doctor, may have an automatic response to be a helper when she sees danger.

However, if Frank really wants to keep everyone, especially Alice, from being aware of this virtual reality, why would a plane crash?

There are several theories regarding this. First, the theory that the plane was bugs. Frank probably didn’t think there was such a disturbance.

Second, the plane could have been originally intended as a threat. As we know, wives never leave. Perhaps, the plane crash is expected to cause fear for them to get out of Victory, so that none of the wives are confused and then run into the desert, approaching Headquarters.

Third, it has to do with Margaret’s children’s toy plane which is similar in color. The memories and feelings of the characters in Victory are linked by Frank’s programming, so what may have been Margaret’s concern, may appear elsewhere as a plane crash (indicating that something wasn’t all right).

In your opinion, why did the plane crash scene have to exist?

Where do husbands go?

Every morning, husbands go to work like a picture of the ideal life of the 50-60s decade. The wife, waiting in the residential area while gossiping, eating, cooking, and so on.

We know that Victory is virtual reality. So what do men actually do?

The boys realized that Victory wasn’t the real world, especially Jack. Initially, it was Jack who made Alice unconscious because she was hurt by Alice’s busy life as a doctor and her refusal to make love because she was tired. Unemployed Jack, feeling his self-worth lost, inserts an unconscious Alice into the program via a special device.

Towards the end of the film, we will see a scene where Jack wakes up, while Alice falls asleep with a special device in her eye. Jack gives Alice an IV, then goes back into virtual reality.

When husbands leave, they probably go to the real world. Either they work for real, either clean the house in the real world, or maybe they also take care of the physical women in the real world to stay alive and stay clean.

In the real world, they might give infusions of food, bathe them, or something else, turning wives into their stuffed toys. Alive, but unconscious. Terrible, isn’t it?

Why did Margaret kill herself? Is he really dead?



In addition to the plane crash, the death of Margaret’s child after being taken to the desert is also a trigger why Alice begins to be suspicious of this virtual reality.

Margaret herself probably committed suicide because she experienced the same thing as Alice. He probably knew what was going on behind all of this. In contrast to Alice, he seemed to be shunned at first, making him depressed. Unable to accept reality, he chose to take his life.

However, we don’t know whether Margaret died in real life or not. Bunny once told Alice that if a man dies in Victory, he will also die in the real world. The reason, maybe because this program was created by Frank who is basically misogynistic. Or, because of the difference in consciousness between men and perfume.

The boys are aware that Victory is not real, while the girls (except Bunny), are not. So, when the men who are aware of virtual reality If this is dead, they will also die in the real world because they consciously brought themselves there.

What is the meaning of scene Dancing Girls?



Every time Alice recalled reality or touched Headquarters, she was always faced with the sight of women dancing in ’50s clothes and makeup, forming eye-like circles. Why should they?

Victory is based on an old life. Perhaps the scene of the dancing women was one of the basic types of hypnotic programming that shaped Victory’s life. It is the boundary between the virtual world and reality. So, every time someone woke up from Victory, they would see that.

Why did Shelley kill Frank?



In Victory, Shelley is Frank’s wife, a woman who knows everything. However, why did he kill Frank after finding out that Alice had run away? Did he intend to help Alice?

Maybe yes, maybe not. Maybe Shelley intended to end it all because she couldn’t stand Frank’s way. However, there is one other theory.

With Alice running away, Shelley may feel that Frank isn’t good at programming. He also kills Frank and may become the “new ruler” of Victory, then creates a more perfect environment than Victory so that things like this don’t happen again. Or rather, Shelley wants to make the world the opposite? Who knows.

Why is Alice’s egg empty?



One afternoon, Alice intended to make eggs. To his surprise, all the eggs he bought were apparently empty. There really is no content.

Some say that this is an error in virtual reality. However, there are also those who argue that the eggs are empty because they were not prepared before. Alice changed her cooking plan so that the egg wasn’t filled perfectly by programmer.

Does Jack love Alice?



Of course there is a difference between obsessing and loving. Frank and Dr. Collins may be a demon of sedition, but Jack is definitely a bad human being, and so may other husbands whose wives don’t know the truth.

We can see that the problem in real relationships is not Alice, but Jack. Alice had never hurt Jack. Alice just refused to make out because she was too tired to work. Jack, felt his pride hurt because of it.

Jack makes Alice unconscious, puts her in a program, even locks Alice’s body in a room with three doorknobs, so Alice can’t get out and no one can find them. It’s a hell of a torture, proving Jack doesn’t love. He is obsessed with controlling Alice.

Terrifyingly, Alice might not be the only victim. Alice was probably just one of many women whose freedoms were snatched away without consensus.


Don’t Worry Darling is the type of film that after you watch, it actually makes you even more confused and wondering. For those of you who have watched it, maybe you can re-watch it to find various clues to your question.
