A touching, comic crowd pleaser that may require a tissue or two by the end, A Man Called Ove is Swedish director Hannes Holm’s irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s eponymous best-seller. It’s a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot -- and no reticence about telling them so. After new neighbors accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary, regimented world is shaken in ways he never would have imagined.


"Holm makes poignantly clear that being needed is an essential human desire, and life is so much sweeter when shared with others." - Variety
