Wonderful movie with great performances. Really interesting to learn about Astrid's life and the hardships she faced. It was bittersweet in that it was hard to see her strained relationships and how they affected her. I was a little disappointed that it didn't touch on how she became a writer, but I think that was intended. The lead actress was wonderful.
