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. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself but soon her fortunes change for the better. By exposing the narrow minded local townsfolk to the best literature of the day, she opens their eyes thereby causing a cultural awakening in a town which has not changed for centuries. Her activities bring her a kindred spirit and ally in the

figure of Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy) who is himself sick of the town's stale atmosphere. 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 (Patricia Clarkson)!

MAY WE BREAK UP FOR YOU?
There is also a rather hilarious trailer for New Zealand comedy THE BREAKER UPPERERS produced by Thor's Taika Waititi. Out in Australia this May, it follows two women who discovered they were being two-

    1. isn't it lovely? I just wish they've chosen some other actress, Emily is nice but she's not exactly an overly expressive actress

  3. The Breaker Uppers looks hilarious. I thought breakup by text was bad, but I think I'd take that over a breakup singing gram!

    It would be such a dream to open a bookshop in a sleepy English town! That lady is living my dream.

    1. I'd rather have a bookshop in some big city.... you know, more customers :)

    2. I managed a busy bookshop 20 years ago. It sucked. I would prefer a small town where everyone knows your name. You really get to know your customer base then. When you work in a big city, you get more assholes than anything else. It was the small town regulars that I absolutely loved.

    3. that's nice. I don't think our small town bookshops can survive since we don't have a lot of people reading in smaller places and the price of the books here is crazy.

    4. Books are crazy expensive here too, but we had our regulars that insisted we call them as soon as new volumes arrived. There was one lady that would come in every month and buy $300 worth of books on Ancient Egypt. She could have fallen into the jerk category, inspecting every inch of the book for any imperfection (a small thumbnail sized dent on the spine would warrant having the book sent back for a replacement) but she was a regular, was friendly, and spent a lot of money with us, so we overlooked her quirks. I had customers bringing me gifts after Mariah was born because they felt like they were on the journey with me. It sucks that companies like Amazon don't allow for small businesses to thrive these days. Maybe if we shopped local we'd be more in touch with our community. That's what's lacking from society these days.

    5. Sounds lovely! Books here are sometimes one tenth of your monthly salary, and I mean one book :) Regular book. Not like that ART MUSEUM book I did which costs here like an average monthly salary (it is $250). Books here are about ten bucks but our average salaries are 200-300$ a month, so most people cannot afford them.
