Top talented cast starring in 'The Bookshop'

Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name, ‘The Bookshop’ is set in a sleepy 1950’s English town. 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 seaside town of Hardborough. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself but soon her fortunes change for the better. By promoting classic contemporary works of fiction such as Nabokov’s Lolita and Ray Bradbury’s Rahrenheit 451, she stirs long buried feelings in the townsfolk and in particular in the reclusive Mr Brundish with whom she subsequently strikes up a deep bond. 

But her actions bring the wrath of the controlling, vengeful Violet Gamart, a local social doyenne who is jealously affronted by the changes our heroine has affected.

"It's memorable for its subtle unconventionality - sad without being a weepy, touching without being a romance." - Times UK
