Midsommar

TIME OUT SAYS

Unusually for a horror director, Ari Aster knows the real world is awful enough. Horror is what happens to people who are already emptied out and vulnerable. It’s an insight that has already yielded Aster two world-class performances, first from Hereditary’s Toni Collette as a ragged, raging mother at sanity’s end, and now from Midsommar’s Florence Pugh as Dani, an anxious grad student trembling with concern for her torubled sister. Pugh is exquisitely neurotic and Jack Reynor as Christian pulls off a tricky role. When Dani invites herself along on Christian’s Swedish escape, the landscape and near-constant sun lets you know not everything is right. We’d be spoiling it if we told you any more.

WHAT IS IT...
Another wild horror from the man behind Hereditary

WHY GO...
There’s not another filmmaker working that does this kind of thing
