This film was last shown on 12 July 2018
Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s 1978 novel, The Bookshop
follows a free-spirited widow, Florence Green, as she opens a bookshop in a
sleepy coastal town. Her literary selections - including Nabokov’s Lolita and Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 - don’t agree with some
of the conservative locals, whose somewhat sheltered existence hasn’t yet been
hit by the social and sexual revolutions of the cities. Florence’s defiant
risk-taking soon finds her coming up against some of the town’s bigwigs, who
are determined to shut her shop down.
Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy deliver fine performances that
will enchant book and film lovers alike. With moments of gentle romance that
wouldn’t be out of place in Brief
Encounter, alongside the comedy and social commentary of Jane Austen, director
Isabel Coixet’s award-winning film is a charming celebration of art, and worlds
waiting to be discovered behind book covers.
