Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman’s international bestselling novel, Ove (Rolf Lassgard) is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, Ove 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 flatten 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 a gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.
