Becoming Astrid
Not rated 123 minutes in Danish & Swedish with English subtitles

Directed by: Pernille Fischer Christensen

Starring: Alba August, Trine Dyrholm, Maria Bonnevie

Becoming Astrid is a timelessly engaging look at the power and resilience of women both real and fictional. Restless to break free from the confines of her conservative upbringing, Astrid accepts an internship at a local newspaper where she attracts the attention of its editor. When Astrid becomes pregnant, she leaves her childhood home and gives birth to a son, whom she reluctantly leaves in the care of a foster mother. Astrid uses her imagination and flair for storytelling to reconnect with her son, and she emerges with a newfound courage that will later form the foundation of a vast and beloved body of work including the legendary Pippi Longstocking series.
