Ari Aster’s 2019 folk horror film under the banner of A24 production house needs on new introduction. Midsommar received enough praise and has become a cult horror classic in a very short period of time and one major fact was Florence Pugh’s groundbreaking performance. Revolving around the terrifying rituals and cultural aspects of a Scandinavian pagan cult, Pugh devotes herself to the script to let the sun in her shine. Watch the teaser for the film below.
Over the years, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women has been adapted quite a few times on screen but, nothing stands out as beautifully as Greta Gerwig’s 2019 coming-of-age period drama adaption. Chronicling the lives of the four March sisters, it was Saoirse Ronan as Jo March who stole the show. But no one can deny the powerful impact Florence Pugh’s Amy March brought on screening giving her one of the best character arcs to fulfil. You can check out the trailer for the film below.
