Florence Green (Emily Mortimer), a free-spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop -- the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town's less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs. Gamart, Harborough's vengeful, embittered alpha female who is a wannabe doyenne of the local arts scene.

The Bookshop is a gentle, quiet film in which not a whole lot happens... But it's beautifully evocative of the musty, inviting smell of a bookshop on a cool day, or of the nostalgic pleasure of old photographs.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
Ultimately, The Bookshop dramatizes a kind of very British, quiet, polite asphyxiation.
Steve Murra, ArtsATL
The Bookshop is classically British, from its salty seaside characters, to its fireplaces and knit shawls, and especially to [its] central conflict.
