When I bought tickets to watch DWD, all I knew was this:
Harry Styles was in it
Olivia Wilde is his girlfriend
I went in fully unaware of what the movie was about or even the genre. Had you asked me before I watched it, I would have sworn it’s a romantic comedy of sorts. Boy, could I have been more wrong.
The movie in my opinion was magnificent. Yes, people made fun of Styles’ acting, but honestly I feel that’s because people always saw him as a goofy singer in cool outfits rather than an actor.
His portrayal of a creep was genuinely so good that I could not believe my eyes that such a handsome man could be made to look so abhorrent.
The ending was such a twist that the crowd in the theatre literally gasped and honestly so did I.
I have not read the original story but boy oh boy I do believe this movie was awesome. You just don’t expect anything that happens to happen and everything leaves you in shock; one after the other.
You don’t have to be a fan of Styles, Wilde, Pugh, Pine or any of the super famous cast to like this film. It is mysterious and funky in all the right ways.
I promise you won’t be disappointed!
