In Swedish, with English subtitles. Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman's international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door.

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.
