It’s been over a week since the highly anticipated movie, especially by many Swedes, ‘Midsommar’ premiered in cinemas around the world. The film, directed by Ari Aster, centers around one of Sweden’s most important, if not the most important, holiday: Midsummer. The holiday which celebrates summer solstice takes a twisted turn in the movie, as American teenagers travel to Sweden to partake in the celebrations.
Curious as to what people’s opinions were of the film, our editors scoured the internet in search of opinionated film watchers, and we were not disappointed. If you haven’t already seen the movie – perhaps these tweets below can persuade you to grab a ticket today.
Overheard on the way to work:

Midsommar is a good reminder that staying with a friend's family is always a little uncomfortable

There is a very early scene in Midsommar where Florence Pugh confronts her shitty boyfriend over legit bad behavior, and he gets defensive so she ends up apologizing for making things weird and begging him to just sit and talk to her. I have never felt more seen.

Highly recommend catching a daytime screening of Midsommar so that when you leave the theater you’ll see the sunshine and just freak the fuck out

The scariest part of Midsommar is how long all those Swedish people stay locked in a casual embrace. If someone holds you in a hug for that long, you in danger girl.
