About the Film

In a provincial seaside town in 1950s England, Florence (Emily Mortimer), a recent widow, opens up a progressive bookstore and quickly causes a stir by selling controversial books like Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 and Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita. While some, like the reclusive Mr. Brundish (Bill Nighy), find her offerings refreshing, others feel threatened—particularly the community’s ruthless grande dame, Mrs. Gamart (Patricia Clarkson). Based on the acclaimed novel by Penelope Fitzgerald, The Bookshop is a subtly subversive testament to the power of literature and the free exchange of ideas.
