If you're in the mood for a quiet film about books, discussions about literature and about challenging mentalities, and you're a fan of Bill Nighy, Emily Mortimer or Patricia Clarkson, this might be for you.

"The tale of Florence (Emily Mortimer), a young war widow who opens a bookshop in this deceptively peaceful location, becomes more urgent and far more touching than we expect. Almost immediately, old-money forces align against her in the form of Violet (Patricia Clarkson), a grande dame who wants the store’s historic premises for herself. And as Violet — every utterance a scalpel sheathed in velvet — schemes to evict her, Florence finds an unlikely ally in Mr. Brundish (Bill Nighy), a reclusive misanthrope and avid reader." ( Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times)

Directed by Isabel Coixet.
Starring Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Honor Kneafsey, James Lance, Patricia Clarkson, Harvey Bennett.
