Program Description

Event Details

Based on the bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman. Ove is an isolated, grumpy widower who spends his days enforcing block association rules and visiting his wife's grave. He has given up on life when an unlikely friendship develops with his boisterous new neighbors. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared. Nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year (2017).
