A Swedish Midsummer Sex Comedy (2009)
Saturday 22nd January 2011
A beautiful waterfront house, a Swedish flag fluttering in the wind. A sailboat tied to the wooden deck below. This is the setting for a group of friends' annual Midsummer celebrations in A Swedish Midsummer Sex Comedy, released by Optimum Home Entertainment on 31st January 2011, and starring Luke Perry, Lisa Werlinder and Alexander karim.
The friends are gathered at Emil's family house and the herring lunch, sauna, games and compulsory skinny dipping are as always prepared. Expectations are set - Micke worries about his highly pregnant wife and the fastest way to the nearest hospital. Eva is looking for some distraction from her recent split with Patrick and Sam (Luke Perry, Beverly Hills 90210), Emil's college buddy from the States arrives with his own expectations of Swedish sin. Wannabe singer-songwriter Anders hasn't told his wannabe pregnant girlfriend Maria about his low sperm count and hopes to solve the problem over the weekend. To top it off Emil's surprise seems to lift the party to unprecedented heights. If everything had gone according to plan that is.
