Watch A Man Called Ove, the 2015 Swedish film based on the bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman. An Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Film, it tells the story of Ove - everyone's favorite curmudgeon! Ove, an ill-tempered, isolated retiree who spends his days enforcing block association rules and visiting his wife's grave, has finally given up on life just as an unlikely friendship develops with his boisterous new neighbors.
A Man Called Ove is available for viewing on both HOOPLA and KANOPY. You can set up your own HOOPLA or KANOPY account easily using your AWPL library card. If you would like to (re-) read the book, a digital version is available on Overdrive or you may place it on hold through the RCLS catalog.
