Becoming Astrid. Sweden/Denmark, 2018, directed by Pernille Fischer Christensen. This fascinating biopicture centers on the creative and unconventional Swedish children's book writer Astrid Lindgren, who wrote Pippi Longstocking, which was published in 1945 to great acclaim. The story shows how overcoming turns to becoming if, among other things, you’re able to stick to your principles. This film about an exemplary woman, made by women, is as much a pleasure as it is a lesson. 120 minutes. In Swedish and Danish with English subtitles.
