The Movie: Wild Strawberries (1957)
What Is It?: Ingmar Bergman puts his bleakness in the cupboard to make a very touching portrait of an old grump’s journey to receive a Doctor Jubilaris degree. Along the way, he meditates on his past, present, and future; picks up hitchhikers; and picks the title fruit.
Why Today?: Today is National Pick Strawberries Day.
