A Man Called Otto was released on Netflix in May 2023 after its premiere in theaters in December 2023. It’s one of the most recent theatrical releases to be added to the streaming service. The film is based on the best-selling book, A Man Called Ove, by Fredrik Backman. There’s another movie based on the book, so don’t get them confused.
A Man Called Otto tells the story of a grumpy, old man, Otto Anderson, played by Tom Hanks, who learns a few things about himself, life, and gains perspective after a new family with young kids moves in next door and befriending Marisol, played by Mariana Treviño.
A Man Called Otto has a 97% audience approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. We have a feeling A Man Called Otto will be one of the most popular new releases on the streaming service for a while, but it won’t stay there forever. After Netflix, it will likely move to Disney Plus, but don’t worry, you have a while until that happens.
