Unga Astrid ( Sweden | Denmark, 2018 / French title: Astrid / English title: Becoming Astrid) Long before she was the world-famous children's book author and creator of Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren was a free-spirited farm girl in rural Sweden in the 1920s who endured a heartbreaking price for having a committed a transgression.
