Denmark, Sweden | 2018 | Pernille Fischer Christensen
The Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren was apparently as feisty and vibrant as her most famous character, Pippi Longstocking. Born in 1907, Lindgren defied her society’s conventions by giving birth out of wedlock and supporting her child as a single mother. This “gorgeous piece of heritage filmmaking” (Variety) dramatizes how a tumultuous youth produced a revered national treasure. (Lindgren died in 2002 at age 94.) Subtitles. DCP. 123 min.
