Synopsis

Based on the bestselling novel by author Fredrik Backman (A Man Called Ove), this warmhearted comedy-drama finds Britt-Marie, age 63, suddenly reconsidering her purpose in life after she discovers her husband of 40 years has been cheating on her. Accepting a supremely unglamorous job at a ramshackle youth center in the backwater town of Borg, she reluctantly takes on the impossible task of coaching the children's soccer team to victory. Despite having no experience and no resources, Britt-Marie is invigorated by the team's infectious energy and, for the first time maybe ever, allows herself to step out of her comfort zone and into a potential romance with a charming local police officer.

The most refreshing thing about the movie is having a more mature woman at the center of the action, and August knows not to overreach here. She is dryly funny, but also subtly affecting, and it’s a pleasure to watch her heart and mind slowly but surely open up to life’s possibilities.
