1:30 p.m. Il Postino (The Postman) explores themes of love and friendship through sensitively depicted and beautifully acted relationships in 1950s Italy. The relationship is between the Chilean Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda and Mario, the postman who delivers his copious mail. Neruda is an aloof and slightly elitist figure who is seeking solitude on an island; Mario is a poet at heart and uses every measure he can invent to get the attention of the great author. As his efforts start to bear fruit, the postman idolizes the poet all the more. And… there is the captivating Beatrice! Nominated for an Academy Award in 1995.
7 p.m. A Man Called Ove steps from the pages of an international best-selling novel. It's the quintessential story of the angry old man next door, an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse who spends his time enforcing block association rules only he cares about and visiting his wife's grave. Enter a boisterous young family next door which accidentally flattens Ove's mailbox while movng in. From this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms, we come to understand Ove's past unhappiness and heartbreaks and a heartwarming tale emerges.
