Aster’s second feature length film is another study of cults, trauma, and the human psyche. The folk horror begins with a family tragedy, before Dani is begrudgingly invited to join her boyfriend Christian and his friends on holiday to a small commune deep in the vivid forests of Sweden. A series of strange and shocking events unfold as they attend a midsummer celebration that only takes place once every ninety years.
English and Swedish with partial subtitles.
