Acclaimed Films Coming to Women's Online Theater Herflix: Becoming Astrid is the Biopic of Author of Pippi Longstocking Book Series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Feminist and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornest's Nest

Did you read Pippi Longstocking as a child? I know I did. I loved her antics and enjoyed reading about a fearless and fun female as a child, not knowing the effects of reading about a shero would have in shaping my view of life and the world. 

Becoming Astrid is the story about the prolific, groundbreaking author, Astrid Lindgren. The film is now available on Herflix, the online movie platform for women. This film is a moving depiction of this Swedish author and her life, especially her formative years as a young girl. Even if you did not read the books, the biopic stands on its own as a telling tale of an author in the making. Featuring acclaimed performance by August Alba and Audience Award Winner Chicago International & Mill Valley Film Festivals.
