A Swedish smash hit, 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, he’s largely given up on life. But when pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her 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, resulting in a tale of unreliable first impressions and a reminder that life is sweeter when shared.
