mature thematic material involving suicide attempts, and language
Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Mariana Trevino, Rachel Keller, Tom Hanks
Otto (Tom Hanks) is a grumpy isolated widower with staunch principles, strict routines and a short fuse, who gives everyone in his neighborhood a hard time as he watches over it like a hawk. Just as it seems like he's finally given up on life, an unlikely and reluctant friendship develops with his new neighbors. Little by little, Otto undergoes a subtle transformation... but is he really capable of change? The film will be directed by Marc Forster. Two-time Oscar nominee David Magee is adapting the screenplay from Fredrik Backman's 1# New York Times Bestseller "A Man Called Ove" - with the titular character being renamed to reflect the shift to an American setting. Fredrik Wikström Nicastro, Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman are producing. Marc Forster, Renée Wolfe and David Magee will serve as executive producers. The film stars Tom Hanks, Mariana Treviño, Rachel Keller and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.
