The Bookshop

The Bookshop
  • 2017
  • 1h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Isabel Coixet
  • Cast: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson

Florence (Mortimer) is a war widow who causes a stir in a 1950s Suffolk seaside town when she opens a bookshop. Like modern-day Brief Encounter, this adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel is all unspoken sentiment which never descends into mawkishness. Restrained but quietly subversive.

  • Directed by: Dominic Savage
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Dominic Cooper, Frances Barber

An ordinary woman (Arterton) makes an extraordinary decision which will change her life forever. An uncompromising, claustrophobic and intelligent domestic drama that refuses any and all easy answers, led by a heartbreaking performance from Arterton.
