A Man Called Ove
3,644 people came to see Ove in 2016 and now one of Real Art Ways’ most beloved films is back!
“Cinematic comfort food.” – NY Times
“Manages to fuse melodrama with dark comedy and — no small feat — make it work.” – Washington Post
Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman’s international best-selling novel, A Man Called Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life.
Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in and earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks.
What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.
