Movie Night 2/28 Print

The Swedish Club of Houston's first Movie Night of 2023 will be on Tuesday, February 28th at The Bull and Bear Tavern and Eatery, 11980 Westheimer Suite A, Houston TX 77077 (in the room to the left as you walk in the front door).

We will be showing Den bästa sommaren, a 1hr31min comedy-drama released in 2000, in Swedish with English subtitles.  From "The summer of ’58, the year Sweden almost won the world championship in soccer over Brazil, Yngve Johansson accepts two children to live with him during the summer, as told through the eyes of a young boy. His name is Mårten, and the other child’s name is Annika. She is a rough girl, with many problems. The three of them do not get along, and Yngve is a true dictator to the children’s eyes. However, when the children discover that their new guardian has a crush on their teacher (Cecilia Nilsson), they do what they can to bring the two together. Soon enough, the three will discover that they have a lot more in common than they previously imagined, and together they can make their lives worth living again."

Come early for socializing and order a dinner/drink to enjoy during the movie. We will start the movie at about 7:30.  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!
