Alice (Florence Pugh, “Black Widow”) and Jack (Harry Styles, “Dunkirk”) 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 (Chris Pine, “Star Trek”)—equal parts corporate visionary and motivational life coach—anchors every aspect of daily life in the tight-knit desert utopia.
The Brazilian film editor Affonso Gonçalves studied at the London International Film School. Followed by the American Film Institute. Before his Primetime Emmy nomination he worked as an assistant editor for the filmmaker Todd Solondz in projects like Welcome to the Dollhouse. Goncalves has worked in films, music videos and documentaries. Some of his known films are True Detective, Carol, Paterson, The Lost Daughter and this year’s A Love Song starring Dale Dickey.
I had a moment to connect with Affonso Gonçalves via Zoom to talk about Don’t Worry Darling. He discussed wanting to work on this film for the cast and the story. In addition to being a fan of Olivia Wilde’s work and agreeing with her statement, this film pushes the boundaries of the imagination.
