Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman’s international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential grouchy old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days patrolling his neighborhood enforcing association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life. Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in, earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms, and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared. Warm and funny, A Man Called Ove has been an audience favorite wherever it has shown and is one of Sweden's biggest locally-produced box office hits ever. Writer/director Hannes Holm finds the beating heart of his source material, and Rolf Lassgård, whose performance won him the Best Actor award at the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival, affectingly embodies the lovable curmudgeon Ove. Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. (Fully subtitled)
