A couple travels to Scandinavia to visit a rural hometown's fabled Swedish mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
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
The Americans react to the sun being up late at night. The sun doesn't set until after 10:30 PM in the area around midsummer, but the lack of long shadows reveals that the scene does not take place in the late evening at 61° North (where the story takes place) but rather around noon at 47° North (Hungary, where the supposed Swedish scenes are actually filmed).

A 171-minute long director's cut premiered at the Scary Movies XII film festival at the Lincoln Film Center. This version adds more graphic violence and extends many pre-existing scenes. See more »
Why is this rated so high on IMDB?? 2.3 hours of wasted life.
2.3 hours of my life I will never get back. One of the stupidest, longest movies with no point. Seriously, I am so upset I had to write a review on how a movie can waste so much of my time. I watched it because initially it had a high review and I trusted IMDB reviews to be somewhat accurate. Seems like this site much be tainted with fake reviews. This movie just plain sucks, don't waste your precious time.
