By Linda McDermott and Phil Raschke.
Adapted from the worldwide bestselling book of the same name, “A Man Called Ove” is the heartfelt, humorous tale of an old curmudgeon who has given up on everything including himself. Forced into retirement and removed as president of his neighborhood association, Ove spends his days as a rule bound, grumpy old man who deeply misses his late wife. Ove does not fear death, but laments that death has passed him by, taken others, and left him here all alone. Then one day a new neighbor with a pregnant Iranian wife and young children moves next door and Ove’s daily life is suddenly put to the test. With an academy award nomination for best foreign language film, “A Man called Ove” has been hailed a cinematic masterpiece.
