Monday 05 June 2023:  A MAN CALLED OTTO

(15 COMEDY/DRAMA, Runtime: 126 mins)

A remake of the Swedish film A Man Called Ove. Otto (Tom Hanks) is a curmudgeonly widower with staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People think him bitter, and he thinks they are idiots. Ove’s well-ordered, solitary world gets a shake-up one November morning with the appearance of new neighbours, a chatty young couple and their two boisterous daughters, who announce their arrival by accidentally flattening Ove’s mailbox with their U-Haul. What follows is a heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unlikely friendships, and a community’s unexpected reassessment of the one person they thought they had figured out.
