Midsommar ★★★★½

Breathe Dani, breathe. MIDSOMMAR (2019) is all about breathing. Breathe in, breathe out. Inhale, exhale. Like in SUSPIRIA (2018) the breathing is about sighing and releasing your inner turmoil, whether this is a deep sadness or relieving joy. To Dani the act of breathing is cause for both relief and trauma, which the beginning and ending poetically indicates. Through her personal journey of loss and grief, Dani learns to breathe through commitment, newfound comradery and acceptance. In all its mayhem this process of finding peace and steady balance within oneself is ruefully beautiful. Breathe Dani, and you'll be alright.
