  • Vilhelm Blomgren's character in Midsommar plays a member of a Swedish commune who invites outsiders to their midsummer festival.

Ending

In the ending of Midsommar, Dani chooses to fully embrace the Hårga cult and their disturbing rituals. She becomes the May Queen, and as a part of their tradition, witnesses the sacrifice of her boyfriend and his friends.
