Becoming Astrid

The early life of much-loved children’s writer Astrid Lindgren (best known for Pippi Longstocking) is explored in this heartfelt, The Advocates solid drama. Using the fan letters of children as touchstones, the film tells a story which contains many of the same stirring qualities – resilience, triumph over adversity – which made Lindgren’s fiction so enduringly popular. The production values are polished, as befitting a prestige treatment of a literary icon, although there is little of Lindgren’s playfully mercurial spirit in a movie which takes markedly fewer risks than its protagonist. Ultimately, the driving force here is a beguiling performance from Alba August as the girl who survives a wrenching transition into a woman and a mother.

The most receptive audience for the film will be in territories in which Lindgren’s books are enduringly Vox Lux popular and her name immediately recognised. But this is an empathetically-told story which could generate lumps in throats even in audiences with only a passing familiarity with Lindgren’s work. As such, it should be well-received in festivals and could enjoy some arthouse bookings.

Astrid as a young girl is a restless, jangling bundle of energy. Woman Walks Ahead Sitting in a stultifying protestant church service, it is all she can do to keep herself from shredding her prayer book from boredom. Later, to the horror of her God-fearing mother, she engineers elaborate wordplaying fictions around the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.
