AroView: Dread-soaked art house horror from director Ari Aster (HEREDITARY), with Florence Pugh riveting as an American woman who travels to Sweden with her boyfriend to attend a pagan festival.
Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. After a family tragedy, 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, as this pastoral paradise becomes increasingly unnerving and disturbing.
“The kind of mad science film making worth rooting for: Aster refashions “The Wicker Man” as a perverse breakup movie, douses Swedish mythology in Bergmanesque despair, and sets the epic collage ablaze.” ~ IndieWire.
