Critic Reviews of "Becoming Astrid (Unga Astrid)"Chicago TribuneDecember 06, 2018
Throughout "Becoming Astrid," August acquits herself brilliantly; the woman we come to know is a tangle of impulses and qualities, and feels vibrantly alive.Arizona RepublicNovember 29, 2018
Though "Becoming Astrid" is unflinching in its depictions of Astrid's pain, it does not wallow. A shallower story would be rife with villains, but there are none here.Washington PostNovember 28, 2018
Pippi Longstocking has sometimes been called an icon of feminist girl-power. If "Becoming Astrid' makes anything clear, it's that the character's creator was something of one herself.RogerEbert.comNovember 23, 2018
This film about an exemplary woman, made by women, is as much a pleasure as it is a lesson.New York TimesNovember 22, 2018
Hansen's relaxed camera movements and fuzzy-soft compositions are quite beautiful, and the performances - including the superb Trine Dyrholm as the baby's Danish foster mother - are pitch-perfect.L.A. WeeklyNovember 21, 2018
Christensen portrays Lindgren as a born storyteller but delves into the vital time in her development when confounding expectation gave way to building her own narrative.AWFJ Women on FilmFebruary 28, 2019
Pernille Fischer Christensen crafts an incisive, engaging portrait of the artist as a young woman.Should I See ItJanuary 13, 2019
(Alba) August brightens the screen with a performance that begins full of youthful excitement...and then matures right before our eyes.Malibu TimesDecember 14, 2018
Anchored by a brilliant performance by Alba August, this is a charming-yet-realistic small gem of a film.Mark Reviews MoviesDecember 06, 2018
It's more about the evolution of an attitude, a mindset, and a philosophy on life than a single book or character.Austin ChronicleDecember 06, 2018
Becoming Astrid's saving grace is Alba August. She is in almost every frame of this film, and gives life to what, on paper, amounts to a Lifetime channel biopic.Arts FuseDecember 06, 2018
Director and co-writer Pernille Fischer Christensen has crafted a powerful coming of age story that is also a story of how society slowly transforms.
