“Becoming Astrid” is a biographical drama film about the early years of the famous Swedish author, Astrid Lindgren, the creator of the beloved children’s character, Pippi Longstocking. The film is directed by Pernille Fischer Christensen and stars Alba August in the titular role.

The movie tells the story of Astrid’s formative years, from her teenage years to her early adulthood. We see her facing difficult challenges such as an unplanned pregnancy, societal pressures, and a society that doesn’t give women the same opportunities as men.

Alba August delivers a standout performance as Astrid, portraying her with a depth and complexity that makes her a relatable and likable character. The supporting cast is also excellent, with standout performances by Maria Bonnevie as Astrid’s mother and Trine Dyrholm as her editor and mentor.

The film’s pacing is slow, but it adds to the atmosphere of the story and allows us to delve deeper into the character of Astrid. The cinematography is beautiful, with stunning landscapes and a warm, inviting color palette that transports the audience to the Swedish countryside.
