Based on the breathtaking book of the same name, Hannes Holm’s Swedish smash hit is the 3rd most viewed film in Sweden’s cinema history. This heartwarming and highly acclaimed comedy-drama has already stamped its mark on the world stage, with multi-nominations at the Academy Awards including best foreign language film.

Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is the quintessential grumpy old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life. After a boisterous young family moves in next door accidentally flattening Ove’s mailbox, an unlikely friendship forms.

Plus short:

Clanker Man (2017) by Ben Steiner and Dan Dixon.

Reality doesn’t happen by itself. Terry Lothian works tirelessly to maintain the background details that we all take for granted. But with his department feeling the pinch of austerity cutbacks, it’s not just the fabric of reality that’s starting to unravel.
