New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

Closes May 11

Based on the comical and moving New York Times bestseller, A Man Called Otto tells the story of Otto Anderson (Tom Hanks), a grumpy widower whose only joy comes from criticizing and judging his exasperated neighbors. When a lively young family moves in next door, he meets his match in quick-witted and very pregnant Marisol, leading to an unexpected friendship that will turn his world upside-down.

Hanks’ performance – probably his best since News of the World (which featured a not-dissimilar character) – is the glue that holds everything together.


It’s another memorable performance from the veteran actor, backed by a crackling good supporting cast.
