Since I am a fan of Frederik Backman’s writing and loved this book, I was really looking forward to the movie. Although I enjoyed it, I was a little disappointed. It doesn’t have the depth and the character development that the book has. Brit-Marie’s quirkiness comes through, but you don’t get the whole story, mainly with the townspeople in Borg, where she becomes the soccer coach. The film makes it seem like she’s only in Borg, coaching the soccer team for a few days. The book makes it obvious that she’s there longer, so her connection to the children and other people there makes more sense. It’s still worth watching, but I was just hoping for more.
