THE BOOKSHOP   


Drama 113 mins   Certificate PG

Based on the novel by Penelope Fitzgerald.  It is 1959, and widowed Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open up a bookshop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough.  When she exposes the narrow minded townsfolk to the best literature of the day including Nabokov's scandalizing "Lolita" and Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451",

she gains a kindred spirit and ally in the figure of Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy), who is himself sick of the town's stale atmosphere, but has to reckon with the hostility of the other shopkeepers and of self-appointed doyenne Mrs Gamart (Patricia Clarkson).

“Courage is the central theme of this delightful film about books, passion and dreams. . . Lovers of books and admirers of determination will embrace this enchanting film. I hope you will enjoy it, too.”  Urban Cinefile
