Harlan Jacobson's Talk Cinema: A Man Called Ove says
Directed by Hannes Holm

Ove is nearly sixty and the grumpiest man on the block. Despite being removed as president of the condo association years ago, he couldn’t give a damn—so he still rules over the neighborhood with an iron fist. When pregnant Parvaneh and her family move into the terraced house opposite Ove’s and she accidentally backs her car into Ove’s mailbox, setting off the beginning of an unexpected friendship between the curmudgeon and his newest neighbors. Based on the international best selling book about the power of change at any age. 2016, Sweden, DCP, in Swedish with English subtitles, 116 minutes. Open in New York and LA on September 30.
