BPL Movie Night: A Man Called Ove

Bristol Public Library

In September, the BPL Book Club reads A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman and, as a special treat, the library will offer a free showing of the movie release of A Man Called Ove (2015).

Ove (Rolf Lassgard) is the quintessential grumpy old man. Set in his ways and harboring a short fuse, Ove spends his days enforcing neighborhood association rules and grieving for the loss of his late wife. He's nearly given up on life — and then a young family moves in next door, flattens his mailbox and tears up his quiet, well-ordered life.

BPL kicks things off on September 27 in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room at 6:00 p.m. Popcorn and water will be provided to movie attendees. Everyone is welcome to join!

Rated PG-13. 116 minutes. English subtitles only.
