Midsommar18

Directed by Ari Aster | USA | 2019 | 2h 50m / 2h 27m | Starring Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, Vilhelm Blomgren, William Jackson Harper.

A young American couple’s relationship is on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, they go on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime summer festival in a remote Swedish village. What starts as a carefree getaway takes a dark twist when the secluded villagers invite them to participate in unsettling festivities. American director Ari Aster (Hereditary) crafts a contemporary folk-horror masterpiece, creating a dread-soaked and darkly comedic nightmare in a world where darkness unfolds in broad daylight.

The screening on Saturday 8th June will be the Director’s Cut (2h 50m). The screening on Monday 10th June will be the Theatrical Cut (2h 27m). 

Reviews

‘Sick but also beautiful, the film gets away with an impressively audacious running time, simply because it can. It dazzles you with dread.’
★★★★★
Tim Robey, The Telegraph

‘Ari Aster’s Midsommar spooks its audiences not with what they don’t know is about to happen, but what they can clearly see is about to happen, and can do nothing to stop. It’s like being in a locked car rolling slowly towards a cliff.’
★★★★
Tom Shone, Sunday Times
