Angelika New York: Q&A Friday 8/24 following the 9:30pm show with Director Isabel Coixet, moderated by Joe Neumaier (former New York Daily News Chief Film Critic & Film Editor)
England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop. 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). Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's acclaimed novel and directed by Isabel Coixet (LEARNING TO DRIVE), THE BOOKSHOP is an elegant yet incisive rendering of personal resolve, tested in the battle for the soul of a community.
