Synopsis

Struggling with their relationship for over a year, a sudden family tragedy for Dani (Florence Pugh) keeps her together with Christian (Jack Reynor), who invites her along on a trip with his friends to Sweden to attend a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival.

  • 3 stars "I give it three and a half Stars. It was really creative and original but oddly enough I found a kind of boring. Yes there were a few really sick demented scenes, but I would not call this a horror movie. I went into this movie fairly blind as to not spoil any of it and was a huge hereditary and so I think my expectations were a little too high. Disturbing scenes do stick with you though. They did a very decent realistic portrayal people tripping on hallucinogens. IDK. It was good but long I would never want to watch it again."
  • 5 stars "Amazing movie!!! If you ever wanted to know what it's like to be apart of a pagan cult like society this is the film for you! Let's just say you will be awed and shocked at the same time. Not for the faint of heart. Very in depth moving down to the finest detail... If you grew up in a deeply rooted religious household, if you ever denounced your faith at some point in your life... you will connect with this movie! If you haven't experienced a deeply religious up bringing or do not believe in anything you most likely will not connect with this and won't understand it... This movie is for the thinker... Societies like this exist in pockets around the world... to the degree of what and whom they worship is left for you to research and find out!!! Very interesting..."
  • 5 stars "This movie makes you feel like your apart of a traditionsl commune cult like setting... It grabs you and pulls you in whether you like it or not. Making one feel what it is to grow up in something you can never let go of... Extremely religious societies like this still exist out there around the world maybe not to the extent of sacrificial ceremonies but to the extent of keeping their ancient traditions alive whether good or bad. Usually sects that are being persecuted for their ways have to seclude themselves from regular society in order to continue their possibly illegal activities.... This movie takes an array of traditional practices and throws it into one twisted basket. It shows what a society can become when it truly becomes lost from the light and truth. Religious people will understand this movie probably more than those who are not grounded in anything..."
