A Man Called Ove
We are very excited to announce that as part of the Peckham & Nunhead Free Film Festival, Rye Books will be screening ‘A Man Called Ove’. The film was written and directed by Hannes Holm, and is based on author Fredrik Backman’s 2012 book of the same name.
Ove (Rolf Lassgård) 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. After a boisterous young family moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox, an unlikely friendship forms.
The screening will be outside the shop (we project onto the side of our van). We’ll have seating but please bring a blanket or a cushion if you need one.
Plus there’s a chance to win a copy of the film and book with our Swedish raffle, a great gift or present to yourself!
We’ll also be distributing a free Swedish biscuit made by the brilliant local bakers @southeastcakery !
Hope to see you there!
