Two orphaned brothers - Wilbur (Sives) and Harbour (Rawlings) - run a musty old bookshop inherited from their father, until their mother (Henderson) walks into the shop one night and interrupts Wilbur's ham-fisted attempt to hang himself. Tender, touching and funny, this beautifully-observed film plays like a feel-good melodrama that contemplates death and despair.
