Midsommar | A once-in-a-lifetime trip takes a sinister turn

Published:Wednesday | November 13, 2019 | 12:00 AM
Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian’s (Jack Reynor) summer getaway goes horribly wrong in Midsommar.

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 invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. 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.

Midsommar is a folk horror film written and directed by Ari Aster. The film stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, and Will Poulter.
