Ove is your typical angry old man next door. Enter a lively young family who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms, exemplifying a tale of unreliable first impressions and the reminder that life is sweeter when shared.
Nominated for two Oscars® (and a box office hit in its home country!), this lovingly crafted tragicomedy offers a refreshing take on cross-generational friendship. Poignantly capturing the sense of nostalgia that comes with old age, A Man Called Ove offers a powerful ode to the act of sharing.
