A Man Called Ove, 2015 - ★★★★★

#LIFF30 Film 21: My favourite film of the festival so far and the first I unquestionably gave a 5 star rating. It shouldn't have worked, it's a variation on a story that's been told many times before, it's too sentimental in places and it probably is too long. But it does all work, perfectly bringing together humour and humanity and on days like today that's all you need.
