Academy Award Nominee Best Foreign Language 

Stepping from the pages of Frederik Backman’s international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door whose life is brightened by forces beyond his control. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, he spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about and visiting his wife’s grave. In short, Ove has given up on life. Enter a boisterous young family who accidentally flattens his mailbox while moving in next door. And yet, from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms, offering a gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared. D: Hannes Holm, Sweden, subtitled, 2016, 115m
