Indie Films Fernie: A Man Called Ove at the Vogue Theatre
(Sweden, Swedish with English subtitles), the Best Foreign Film Oscar nominated Swedish film is an unabashed, unashamed crowd pleaser that will send audiences home with a smile on their face and a few tears in their eye. Ove is the terror of his suburban neighbourhood, where he used to be chairman of the residents' association until he was voted out, something that he considers a betrayal and still can't forgive. Ultimately, it's a friendship with the new neighbors — practical, pregnant Parvaneh, her young daughters, and her hopelessly unhandy husband Patrik, who never has the correct tools — that gives Ove a new lease on life.
Indie Films Fernie (IFF) screens unique Independent Films at the Vogue Theatre on the first Sunday of every month from September – April.
