Lots of movies coming to theaters or streaming. this new film that I saw in theaters is called A Man Called Otto starring Tom Hanks, the premise is about Otto Anderson is a grump who’s given up on life following the loss of his wife and wants to end it all. When a young family moves in nearby, he meets his match in quick-witted Marisol, leading to a friendship that will turn his world around.
It’s the second film adaption of Fredrik Backman’s 2012 novel A Man Called Ove and an American remake of the 2015 Swedish movie of the same name written and directed by Hannes Holm.
My thoughts: The movie was good, emotional and there are some funny/heartwarming moments; great performances by Tom Hanks and Mariana Treviño.
Also it does have a true message about if someone is having a bad day, introduce yourself and having a positive/comfort conversation.
I give this movie an A.
