Summary
Teenaged Astrid Lindgren, future author of Pippi Longstocking, leads a carefree life in rural Sweden. Eager to break free from her conservative upbringing, she accepts an internship at a local newspaper where she attracts the attention of its married editor. After Astrid becomes pregnant, she leaves home to give birth to a son, whom she reluctantly leaves with a foster mother. When the foster mother falls ill, Astrid uses her imagination and gift for storytelling to reconnect with her child.
"With a vibrant performance from fresh-faced Alba August as the lead, 'Becoming Astrid' looks sure to become a hot seller and makes one eager for more episodes from Lindgren's astonishingly unconventional life."--Variety
"Yet as 'Becoming Astrid' wends its way, it's also sometimes a sly biopic dare."--Los Angeles Times
"Conventional but well-made."--Hollywood Reporter
