Script Analysis of Don't Worry, Darling

A Psychological Thriller that isn't psychological

The 2019 spec script, Don't Worry, Darling is the subject of this month's Blacklist script analysis. While labeled a Psychological Thriller from Wikipedia to IMDb, the narrative structure--and experience of reading the screenplay--says otherwise. Using the Dramatica theory of story as our reference point, we take a closer look at why Darling is more of a straight Thriller than a Psychological one, offering a clue as to its quick sale last year.
