Plot

'The Bookshop' is a movie which is based in the homonymous novel of Penelope Fitzgerald. Directed by Isabel Coixet ('Yesterday Never Ends'), this co-production between Spain and Great Britain tells the story of Florence Green, a widow who decides to open a bookshop in Hardborourgh, a quiet village in England in the 50s. With the help of Christine, Florence chooses an old cottage to open her establishment. This decision disturbs some of the inhabitants of the village, like Violet Gamart, a vengeful woman who will try to interfere in the project of the main character. Due to his new job Florence will meet Mr. Brundish, a loyal reader of the bookshop with whom Florence will maintain a special relationship.
