Welcome to Spinning Reels!
Can a film be a page-turner? The Bookshop just might be.
Monday, October 22nd, 2018 | 7:00 p.m. at the Norwood Theatre * Doors and Reservation desk open at 6:15 *
The year is 1959 when a free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy). As Florence’s obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?
Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel and directed by Isabel Coixet (Learning to Drive, Elegy), The Bookshop acts as a love letter to literature and the importance of dreams. As independent bookstores face competition from corporate giants and the arts continue to prove themselves a force of change, this film is as timely today as ever. You won’t want to miss this wistful ode to the power of a good book. Film Circuit
