A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove

Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman’s charming international best-seller, Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is the quintessential grumpy old man next door, a curmudgeon with staunch principles and a short fuse. Still grieving his late wife, Ove has nearly given up on life when a boisterous young family moves in next door, accidentally flattening his mailbox and upending his ordered, solitary world in the process. As an unlikely friendship between Ove and his new Iranian-Swedish neighbor (Bahar Pars) begins to form, Ove's past happinesses and heartbreaks come flooding back and what emerges is a funny, unexpected and heartwarming tale of human connection that reminds us that life is sweeter when it's shared.
  • Rated PG13 For thematic content, some disturbing images, and language.
