Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani (Florence Pugh) invites herself to join Christian (Jack Reynor) and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village.
“A visceral, unique, utterly f**ed-up experience that demands to be seen on the big screen, Midsommar is the horror film to beat in 2019.” – Nick de Semlyn, Empire
What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of writer/director Ari Aster (Hereditary) comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight – a queasy folk horror experience that will forever change the way you look at the idyllic countryside. (Dir. by Ari Aster, 2019, USA/Sweden, in English/Swedish with English subtitles, 137 mins., Rated R)
