Join the Albert Wisner Public Library for a virtual movie discussion on Sat., July 11 at 2 p.m. via Zoom. Watch A Man Called Ove, the 2015 Swedish film based on the bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman of the same name. 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 two of the library’s streaming platforms – Hoopla and Kanopy. Call the Help Desk at 986-1047, ext. 3 for any assistance. Visit the AWPL Virtual page at www.albertwisnerlibrary.org to register online to receive the Zoom invitation.
