A Man Called Ove

 
Dir. Hannes Holm | Sweden | 116 min | subtitles | 15
 
Sweden's smash hit and nominee for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Hannes Holm's A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel.
 
Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about and visiting his wife's grave, Ove has given up on life. 
But when pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her young family move next door, his solitary, regimented world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined, and from inauspicious beginnings an unlikely friendship forms. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared.
 
'A darkly funny, tragic, and ultimately heartwarming tearjerker about the life of one lonely but extraordinary man' Entertainment Weekly
 
In partnership with Random Acts, we are screening short works by young filmmakers before our main features. We hope you enjoy the talent from young creatives across the country. To accompany A Man Called Ove, we will be screening The Durnhams Drizzle and Really Modern Times.
