The luminous Ingrid Bergman had a storied career, starring in classics including Casablanca, Gaslight and Notorious with such renowned directors as Alfred Hitchcock, Ingmar Bergman, George Cukor and Roberto Rossellini. But there was more to Bergman than her impressive resume. Coming from a childhood fraught with loss, the Swedish-born star was famous for a gentleness of spirit and hardworking ethos off-screen. Scandal followed her marriage to Roberto Rossellini, with whom she had Isabella (whose inspiration brought this film to fruition), Isotta Ingrid, and Renato—but the enduring theme of the film is Bergman’s pure and distinctive charm. Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words is made of stunning home videos, personal letters and family interviews.
