Photo still from 'A Man Called Ove'

"The dopes saying that movies are dead haven’t seen the moving, tender A Man Called Ove.” — Nick Schager, Village Voice.

Ove, an isolated, curmudgeonly old man of strict routines, steadfast beliefs and little tolerance for anyone else spends his days enforcing the block association’s rules and visiting his wife's grave. He has just about given up on life until his boisterous new neighbours accidently run over his mailbox, shaking and transforming his life in ways he could never have imagined.

This morbidly funny film has already won 13 awards and been nominated for two Oscars (2017). It is sure to be a touching crowd-pleaser.
