Default Review: "The Bookshop" starring Harry Potter actor Bill Nighy



THE BOOKSHOP follows a young bookshop owner Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) as she tries to open her shop in a conservative British town in the 1950s, but is trying to gain traction and attention by making then-controversial books by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov available at her store.

Here enters Harry Potter actor Bill Nighy's character, who is forced by Green to take a look at these novels - ones he's both shocked and curious about. The movie toils slowly between these two characters and their love and interest of books, and an oppressive power in the form of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson). Unfortunately, even with great performances from the three, the story itself feels a bit outdated - even for a British period piece - and too slow to carry on. One would hope that for a subject that focused on breaking the mold and ideals of an old British town there would be more intrigue - more shock and scandal - but sadly not the case.

If you're a book lover and advocate for the continued need for bookshops, this is for you. From a narrative point of view, it loses focus at points and meanders on to the point of dullness at times, and may not be most people's cup of tea.

THE BOOKSHOP is in select theaters in the U.S. now.
