From the Director of Chocolat and The Cider House Rules. This quirky, coming-of-age cult classic from acclaimed Swedish director Lasse Hallstrom tells the story
of Ingemar, a 12-year-old working-class boy sent to live with his childless aunt and uncle in a country village after his mother falls gravely ill. The year is 1959, and Ingemar (Anton Glanzelius) is fixated by two major events- his namesake fighting for the World Heavyweight boxing title, and the fate of Laika, a dog sent into space by the Soviets. One of the most tender, nostalgic portraits of childhood ever put to film.
