Purchased on Mighty Ape

I really enjoyed this movie. Well worth watching…made me want to have a book shop of my very own even more than I already did

"ELOQUENTLY SCRIPTED, CAST AND FILMED"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'm drawn to Bill Nighy's work. Leading lady is superb. You won't be disappointed

Description

Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's novel of the same name; ‘The Bookshop’ is set in 1959, Florence Green (Emily Mortimer), a free spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop – the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England.

** Critics Reviews for The Bookshop **

  • “Its subversive undercurrent, embodied in fine performances by Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy, is what makes it really interesting.” – Jonathan Holland , Hollywood Reporter
  • “It's memorable for its subtle unconventionality – sad without being a weepy, touching without being a romance.” – Ed Potton, Times (UK)
  • " It is a strange, subdued, rather miserable film, interestingly perceptive on conformism and philistinism as a way of life, and on the disconcerting wiles the inhabitants use in order to thwart Florence's entirely reasonable plans." – Peter Bradshaw , Guardian
  • “Restrained, but never overly so, The Bookshop deserves plenty of custom.” – James Mottram , The List
