Movie Info

Based on the bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman, author of "A Man Called Ove," this warmhearted comedy finds Britt-Marie, age 63, suddenly re-considering her purpose and habits after leaving her husband of 40 years. Accepting a supremely unglamorous job at a ramshackle rec center in the backwater town of Borg, she finds herself taking an interest in the daily routines of the town's oddball denizens-who all seem perfectly content to be stuck in their ways. Determined not to do the same, she takes on the impossible task of coaching the children's soccer team and draws the attention-and possible affections of-a handsome police officer. Perhaps there is an opportunity for a second chance after all...

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (4)

  • Its portrayal of Britt-Marie sometimes feels condescending, several of its plot turns make no sense, and its visuals add nothing that wasn't already there in the original book.

  • [An] endearing portrait of someone forced to make significant life changes and becoming a better person in the process, through simple human contact.

    October 19, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Dig beneath the underdog clichés, and this modest Swedish drama provides a heartfelt examination of self-discovery and starting over.

    October 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This is a small, sweet work that finds notes of grace that elevate it into something bordering on inspirational.

    October 6, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Nothing wild happens, but the film does take some unexpected turns and ends up in a satisfying place that is a bit different than what we expect.

    October 4, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
