The legendary Swedish director Lasse Hallström, who worked with ABBA on most of their music videos and directed such classics as What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), Chocolat (2000), The Shipping News (2001), or Hachi: A Dog’s Tale (2009), comes back with another sublime melodrama. Hilma (2022) is a historical biopic telling the story of one of the finest Swedish artists: Hilma af Klint. She was a talented modernist, a prominent feminist, and a painter combining spiritualism with abstract art. Unfortunately, her paintings became recognized and appreciated many years after her death.
