    Midsommar Script Breakdown
    The film opens with Dani, played by Florence Pugh, receiving a worrying email from her sister who has a long history of doing impulsive things due to her bipolar disorder.

    The email reads ‘I can’t anymore – everything’s black – mom and dad are coming too. Goodbye’

    This mysterious, alarming contact sets off a chain of events that leads to terrifying consequences for Dani and those around her and whilst it doesn’t really tie into the later plot it’s still a great way to start the story.

    Halsingland Explained
    Christian wants to get away to a quiet Yodelling festival that only happens every 90 years in Sweden known as Halsingland. This has been organised by their friend Pelle who is from the area and has left due to a pilgrimage that all the villagers take once they reach a certain age. Christian originally was planning on going with just his friends and minus Dani but after she guilt-trips him he allows her to come, much to his friend’s dismay.

    The Hargas Explained
    These guys are basically the product of generations of incest that hang Boar Carcasses from branches and look like 19th-century farmers that spend most of their time dancing around the Maypole.

    On the surface, they seem like a group of hippies that hand out magic mushrooms like it’s nothing, however as they begin to carry out their rituals it’s clear that things aren’t right. They far outnumber the group and this makes them intimidating as they slowly start to pick everyone apart.

    Midsommar Ending Explained
    Which is when Christian rushes out, vomits and then sees Josh chained to a fence with his abdomen cut open and covered in birdseed so that they would fly in and peck at his organs. To make things worse Josh is still alive and Christian slowly discovers the rest of the camp, all murdered in brutal ways.

    He’s knocked out and awakens to find himself in a field the next day, ready to be sacrificed to the sun.

    In total there are 9 sacrifices with a handful of villagers stepping forward and the 9th being decided by the May Queen.

    She, of course, chooses Christian and all of the corpses and living people are escorted to a house that was previously off limits where they are stacked against the walls. Christian is put in a bear costume and the room, ladened with hay is set alight.

    Midsommar Review
    So obviously there’s quite a lot to take from this and whilst the script is pretty great, when reading it I always had a niggling feeling that this will play out better on the big screen. Though I didn’t go massively into detail, the description of the location in Sweden, as well as some of the deaths, are really vivid and it’s really got me amped to see how they play out on screen.

    This definitely has the potential to be the most unnerving movie of the year and if it follows in the footsteps of hereditary which was my film of 2018, then we definitely have a lot to look forward to.

      All the horrible things Dani did were under the mind control of demonic beings, summoned by these blood rituals. That's why she is smiling so weirdly at the end. She cannot be blamed at all, because she would never have done these things of her own free will. They wanted to sacrifice the bear and Christian, but didn't want to do it themselves, so they mind-controlled an innocent girl to do it for them. Just like the Illuminati produce mind-controlled assassins.

    Very disturbing! Apocolypse Now used a technique of showing black/white images dispersed in the movie building up to the horror of it all. The walls in this movie are similar technique used effectively and create a disturbing feeling as you become accustomed to the horror of what is happening. Nd I don't want to be accustomed to horror. This is not a movie I could watch a second time right away so I was glad to read the screen play for parts that were still confusing to me. The horror in broad daylight was very effective;; I agree with those reviews which have stated Ari has set a new bar for horror. Do not think I will watch Herditary any time soon, although now I want too. I waited for this movie to come to Amazon as I read a time mag review and was intrigued....yet I still waited awhile. Even so I found it extremely disturbing film. Thankfully I am now able to see the comedy in the film as well. It is unusual person whose mind deals with break up by writing a movie like this.

              Almost every review says the opening doesn't connect to the rest of the story. Quite literally the rest of the movie, at least for Dani, would never happen without that tragedy. She sees flashes of her sister on a bad trip, then again after being crowned May Queen. The complete loss of her old life reaches a critical climax as the building burns with Christine and the others inside. She is the queen and newest cult member because she has absolutely no one left, but these new people that have been so warm and extremely empathetic to her.

                I think that it's because the gruesomeness of the murder/suicide isn't really playing into anything. They might as well have died in a car crash for how their deaths affect her. That's what most people, including myself, take issue with. The dead family is not the focus of the movie, but merely a plot device to get Dani to go to Sweden with her distant bf and his friends while the actual story is about her letting go of her bf.
                It'd be like if Simba loses his dad in that horrible iconic way in the lion king but then the rest of the movie is about him trying to figure out a way to break up with Nala so he can stay in the jungle with Timon and Puumba.
                Thematically, it is jarring that so much specific detail was spent on Dani's fucked up family dynamic and tragic it's tragic end in the beginning of the film and then John Cleese steps into the screen and goes "and now for something completely different" and BOOM Sweden and cheating boyfriends and cults. It's kind of superficial if you think about what this movie could have been. I think it was a mistake to center it around Dani and her stupid boyfriend when the most interesting conflict for her was her complicated relationship with her crazy sister.

                          Dani's bed blanket in the big house had same pattern as the hotel corridor carpet in The Shining. I really enjoyed this movie.

                                if you are going make three films basic on horror why not do it on midsommar death/happyness/birth and dont do it on any other horror movies

                                      Great movie. There's a lot up unpack. It'll take me a few viewings to really grasp all of the nuances in the movie.

                                        I'm sorry, but this analysis was not the best and very shellow... Dani does not want to leave due to the "strange pagan worship". She takes all the rituals, especially the suicide of the elderly, very personal because of her parents' death. Also, sge does not "guilt trip" her boyfriend, quite the opposite actually... This is a psychological film, a well written story with complicated characters, not just a cult horror movie. The whole movie centers around Dani going through loss and never "feeling home" with her egocentric boyfriend, never feeling understood, and finding this community in which she finally felt supported. I loved this movie!!!

                                                    Asking as someone who was a massive fan of Hereditary and wanted to know nothing about this before going in.

So all in all, I will most def not be seeing this movie!!! Lol

                                                                    As much as I would like to see this movie again for a better reflection, one thing for sure I can say: FLORENCE PUGH IS PHENOMENAL! As Dani, she portrays a young, vulnerable girl struggling to maintain a "healthy" relationship with her undeserving, apathetic slacker boyfriend Christian (played intentionally with head-shaking artificiality by Jack Reynor) because her family life is slowly falling apart due to her bipolar sister, and she is desperate to hold onto to someone who has already let her go emotionally. She is terrified of dying alone (which is emphasized more in the script than in the actual product) and finds herself feeling responsible for Christian slipping away on account of her neurosis.

                                                                    Just as Toni Collette gave a masterful performance in Ari Aster's breakout genre outing, Hereditary, as Annie Graham -- a distant wife and suffocating mother watching her family burn up in front of her (both figuratively and literally) -- Florence Pugh imbues her character with the same level of pathos and vulnerability, and her wails of anguish in the first half of the film are so astonishing and so stellar, not only did it recall Collette's work from Hereditary, it established Pugh as a young talent just as remarkable as, say, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, and Brie Larson, 3 of the finest actresses working today.
                                                                    Even the tight close-up of her face as she confessed her worries to Christian about her sister over the phone, miraculous how she made the tears well in her eyes for such an extended period of time. I literally had to take a deep breath after the scene where she wails and sobs in Christian's less-than-understanding arms, just because her acting was that extraordinary. Toni Collette has met her match.

                                                                    The only thing that makes me sad about Pugh's performance is that come award season, she is most definitely gonna be snubbed at the Oscars, the same way Toni Collette was in 2019. Because the Academy is (typically) too blind and close-minded to see the value in a brilliant horror film/performance.

                                                                    • Gerry Buckets

It just shows how different someone can be in their personality versus their imagination.
