Movie Night #2 Print

The Swedish Club of Houston's second Movie Night of 2017 will be on Friday, August 18th at Jake's Sports Bar, 2944 Chimney Rock Rd, Houston, TX 77056.

We will be showing My So-Called Father, a 2014 comedy/drama directed by Ulf Malmros, in Swedish with English subtitles. Film critic Torbjörn Ingvarsson calls it “det här 2014’s bästa dramakomedi från Sverige” (this is 2014’s best drama/comedy from Sweden). It is quite funny at times but its focus lies more in the drama. A young school teacher, Malin (played by Vera Vitali) who is about to become a single mother goes looking for her father (played by the late Michael Nyqvist) to find out why he abandoned her as a child. Vitali was nominated for a Guldbagge award as best female actor for her role in this movie. Michael Nyquist has starred in and appeared in countless movies and TV series, among others Beck and Mission Impossible.

Jake's Sports Bar has plenty of good food. Come early for socializing and order dinner or just a snack and a beer to enjoy during the movie. We will start the movie at about 7:00.  A discussion of the film will follow.  Click here to let us know you're coming (there's no charge for this event; this is just for planning purposes)! See you there!
