'THE BOOKSHOP' TRAILER
EMILY MORTIMER & BILL NIGHY
We have a bunch of delightful trailers for you, starting with the one for THE BOOKSHOP based on Penelope Fitzgerald's book! It is set in 1959,
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)!

'THE BREAKER UPPERERS'
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-
timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical, they became fast friends and formed THE BREAKER UPPERERS, a small time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late 30s and business is booming, and
they keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel (Madeleine Sami) develops a conscience and their friendship is put to the test.
|The movie was produced by Thor Ragnarok's director|
|The film will be offered to distributors this year at Berlin|
