One to Watch - Sarah's Film Recommendations - Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words

Each month, Good Times' resident film critic, Sarah Smyth, chooses a hotly anticipated film for our readers. For August, she picks biopic-documentary, Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words.                       I begin this month with a confession: I have always wanted to be Swedish. They are simply the best at everything. They have an extremely high standard of living. They produce excellent pop music. They have the best gender equality in the world. They have a six-hour workday. They have the hottest men. They have coffee and cake twice a day. And the produce the best movie stars.
