Storyline

Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) 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.

Goofs

While the visual transition is well done cinematically, the inside of an airplane's lavatory door looks much different than depicted in the plane. Additionally, the "lock" sign is pointing in the wrong direction, the coat hook is upside down, and there is no door handle to open the door from the inside just a pull mechanism to close the door but this is not a bifold door so that would not work and Dani would be stuck in the lavatory.

This movie was a trip
6 July 2019 | by palistineroyalSee all my reviews

I'm not sure how but the movie had me on edge the entire time. You have to enjoy cinematography to really enjoy this. I left the movie like I just came down from a high. The whole thing felt like a bad trip afterwards, I was pleased and not at the same time but I think that's how we're meant to feel. It's a good change from super hero movies and terribly made horror movies.
