Femme On

Alyson and Jen Prince (independent film producer and director) talk about the first sex scene in “Don’t Worry Darling” starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles and directed by Olivia Wilde. They talk about all the noise surrounding the movie, the sex scenes and how the scene worked or didn’t work for them vis a vis their own experiences and within the larger narrative.

As women filmmakers, Alyson and Jen are always interested in discussing cinema created by other women and “Don’t Worry Darling” gave them plenty to talk about and digest.
