Winner, Chicago International Film Festival


This vibrant biopic centers on a character-forming period in the young life of a Swedish writer born Astrid Ericsson. The name might sound familiar: she would later earn international fame as the beloved children's author Astrid Lindgren (1907-2002). The film shows that the future creator of Pippi Longstocking had her own difficult periods, and she faced them with the same strength and determination one can discover in her writing. Not Rated. Running Time: 123 Minutes.

PLEASE NOTE: BECOMING ASTRID is in Swedish and Danish with English subtitles
