Midsommar (2019) // Ari Aster
Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, 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 takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in some traditional festivities...

Beetlejuice (1988) // Tim Burton
When the deceased couple Adam and Barbara are unsuccessful in scaring away a family that has moved into their old house, they seek the help of bio-exorcist Betelgeuse. Colin said - "Such a film. Geena Davis and Keaton are hilarious. Winona Ryder’s deadpanning grounds the whole thing wonderfully. Elfman’s mad music provides a lovely bow around the whole thing."

A Whole Life (2014) // Robert Seethaler
A Whole Life tells the subtle and heart-warming story of Andres, living a modest life amidst the rough scenery of the Austrian Alps. The author wonderfully captures the essence of life, memories, solitude and the passage of time. A Whole Life is a great choice if you want to take a step back from the modern world and learn to appreciate and accept life as it is.
