  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A woman in a small town in 1959 England decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop. A decision which becomes a political minefield. By exposing the locals to cutting-edge literature of the day such as Nabokov’s 'Lolita' and Ray Bradbury’s 'Fahrenheit 451', she sows the seeds of an awakening in the conservative town.
Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's novel 'The Bookshop'
