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.Written by
Maybe I need some more time to think about it, but as of right now I am very disappointed in this film. I didn't hate it, I loved the cinematography, shot composition, and Florence Pugh's performance was pretty fantastic. Some of the other actors were good and some others were not so good. I love Ari Aster and his direction, and I loved his previous film Hereditary, which makes this one even more disappointing. I thought it was pretty repetitive and boring, there were a lot of scenes I felt could've been cut, and it probably would've been better. Also, I thought the film was quite pretentious and self indulgent. This was one of my most anticipated films of the year and I wish I could've liked it more.
