Everlasting Moments, 2008 - ★★★½
A lovely, reflective film about a woman in 1900s Sweden who finds solace in photography. She wins a camera in a lottery, but doesn’t use it for years until curiosity - and perhaps a need to have something for herself that isn’t connected to her drunken, abusive husband - leads her to pick it up and learn how to use it. She is an observant person, and has an eye for a moment to capture, eventually making a little money by taking portraits of those in her village.
It is based on a real woman, and the extras interviewing her descendants and showing more of her photos are equally interesting.
