Take the words of my fellow KCLS patrons who praised "The Story of Ove". No movie in recent times has moved me like "Ove". You must be patient and let the entire story open up. The film is like watching a movie within a movie. So wait and meet the entire cast and story. You will be richly rewarded!! If I could I would deliver this film to your house. I want you all to see it!

I think he was too blind given what he'd been through. That he couldn't be sensitive to the suffering of others seemed unlikely given his own pain. Also, I thought the ending was a bit of a cop out; it occurred too soon. I'm being oblique so as not to spoil the story for those who haven't seen it yet.
I loved that the second most important role in the film was a young woman from Iran. Good for Americans to see.

I loved the book, and have been looking forward to seeing the movie. This movie captures the spirit of the book and is beautifully cast. As usual, the book is more detailed and complex, and I do recommend reading the book before seeing the movie. They are both 5 stars.

An uplifting film that a little hard to watch at times. I'm glad I watched it.
