Presented in Swedish with English subtitles

Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Filip Berg, Ida Engvoll, and Bahar Pars

Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman’s international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential angry 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. Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in and earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.

One of Sweden’s biggest locally-produced box office hits ever, director Hannes Holm finds the beating heart of his source material and Swedish star Rolf Lassgård, whose performance won him the Best Actor award at the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival, affectingly embodies the lovable curmudgeon Ove.

Nominated: Best Foreign Language Film–2017 Academy Awards

“…a breathless movie.” – John Hartl, Seattle Times

“A smooth, methodical black comedy… Hearts will warm, and tears may fall.” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

“A morbidly funny and moving success. Director Holm’s grip on the film’s tricky, tragicomic tone is masterful.” – Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com

“The dopes saying that movies are dead haven’t seen the moving, tender ‘A Man Called Ove.’” – Nick Schager, Village Voice

Step aside, Katniss! Make room for Aisholpan, the 13-year-old eagle huntress from Mongolia.

For 2,000 years, the Kazakh people of the Altai region in western Mongolia have practiced a tradition of hunting with golden eagles, whose wingspan can reach up to 7.5 feet wide. Though this practice has traditionally been the domain of men, Aisholpan decides that she wants to become an apprentice hunter after spending her childhood helping her father, a renowned eagle hunter, care for his birds. Under the tutelage and support of her father and her grandfather—and very few others—Aisholpan learns all aspects of falconry, from taming her very own eagle to training for an annual competition, where she will compete against 70 eagle hunters on her quest to gain acceptance.

Featuring breathtaking cinematography and intimate footage, this film not only explores the life of a young girl striving to pursue her passion and break down gender barriers in a very traditional culture, but also provides an engaging glimpse into the lives of this remote community, as they balance their traditional lifestyle with the modern world.
