Synopsis

Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) 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.

From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.

  • 4 stars "I agree this version is better than the original . This is still a very quirky movie ,but in a good way . The new directors cut seems to tie it all in better ,IMO. Some will love it ,some will hate it, but it is different which makes it interesting to me ."
  • 5 stars "Improvement on the original cut. The added footage fills in some of the satire of modern society. Eg. How the elderly are treated / Factionalism between men, women, race, religion, power, science, and superstition. The young try to change society, but are scapegoated or co-opted into one faction or another. Why characters can’t escape, and the nature of secrecy of the cult, are explained. One of the best movies of the year."
