Movie Info

Just as their relationship is on the brink of falling apart, couple Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) are brought closer by a family tragedy. The mourning Dani then joins Christian and his friends, Josh (Will Poulter) and Mark (William Jackson Harper), on a trip to a rural Swedish village that is celebrating a once-in-a-blue-moon festival. As the tourists partake in the celebrations, they discover that the idyllic community holds many unnerving secrets, and it all unfolds in broad daylight. Written and directed by Ari Aster.


Critic Reviews for Midsommar: The Director's Cut

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

None of the flaws of this longer version come close to diminishing the effect of Pugh's sustained, mature and modulated work. Nor do they weaken the case for hers as the finest performance of the year so far...

September 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Much of the film is keenly attuned to human failure and the ugliness of bad relationships, making for a magnetic but continually cringe-inducing ride.

Definitely adding depth to the conflict, this version feels like the product Aster always wanted to make. This is sunny depiction of Hell on Earth. [Full review in Spanish].

December 9, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The 171-minute "director's cut" adds a chilling night-time ritual that fleshes out the commune's deeply-held beliefs and, more importantly, a night-time argument that helps clarify the troubled state of Dani and Christian's relationship.
