DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Horror Mystery - This is a long and fairly slow moving horror thriller. The most familiar face in the cast, Will Poulter, has a small supporting role, with Florence Pugh being the lead. Language and graphic sexual and violent content make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent ...a terrifically juicy, apocalyptic cinematic sacrament that dances around a fruitless relationship in dizzying circles. We are not stuffed inside a cavernous house of horrors this time around. But be prepared to feel equally suffocated by a ravenous family (albeit, a chosen, cultish kind) all the same.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...truly weird and disturbingly captivating... ...quite funny at times, though you're never quite sure the laughs are because of the gallows humor or simply a defense mechanism to keep one's sanity. There are dark secrets and traditions at play, however, and Dani and Christian's personal implosion becomes intertwined with the cult craziness.

NY Post Full Review
Good "Midsommar” is no slouch on chills, but they creep up slowly... ...isn't quite the masterpiece "Hereditary” is — its climax is visually stunning but not entirely surprising. Still, this gorgeous piece of filmmaking throws down a great challenge to other horror directors...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Very Good The film masterfully builds itself around the inevitability of a mass terror, aligning our foreknowledge of that with the anxiety felt by the main character... ...a deeply unnerving film about the indissoluble, somehow archaic bond between self and family...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 11 moviegoers:
As you can see, this was not a well attended movie. We were only able to collect 11 reviews.
TEENS: The one male enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Of the three males, two loved "Midsommar" and one enjoyed it very much. As for the ladies, one loved it, one enjoyed it very much and one enjoyed it, but didn't feel it was anything special or memorable.
ADULTS: OK, this is apparently not a movie for most adults. There really aren't enough reviews to be very accurate, but reviews of "terrible" are very rare.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dani and Christian 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.
