Midsommar (2019) Rated R

A couple on the verge of breaking up visits a rural town in Sweden during their mid-summer festival. Starring Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, and Vilhelm Blomgren.

This is a bizarre film as the couple finds that the town is cult. A word of caution – it has violent scenes as well as sexual scenes not suitable for everyone. I will say that the film is beautifully executed; it’s beautifully shot with wonderful cinematography. My main negatives are the violence and sexual scenes; although, they are reasons to push the story along. It is a horror film. The characters are supposed to be smart, but as in most horror films, they don’t make smart decisions. I also think that the story is mostly about how you would handle the situation if you were as manipulated as these characters were. How would you get out – or could you get out? I get why everyone is oohing and aahing over this film, but it is not worth a watch.
