England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer, Mary Poppins Returns) follows her lifelong dream by opening a bookshop in a conservative coastal town. While bringing about a cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson, Sharp Objects) and the support of a reclusive, book-loving widower (Bill Nighy, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). As Florence's obstacles amass, she reminds herself that a town without a bookshop is no town at all. Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's acclaimed novel, The Bookshop is an elegant rendering of personal resolve and the battle for the soul of a community.
