Monday Movies - "The Bookshop"

Monday Movies continue through the fall & winter with a combination of entertainment films and documentaries. Patrons are invited to bring a snack and covered drink, and are reminded that proper mask wear and social distancing are expected from all attendees.

"The Bookshop" - 2017, 113 minutes, rated PG.

England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy).

As Florence's obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?

This program is intended for adults and seniors but all are welcome. All QPL programs are free and open to the public. Space is limited and reservations are requested.
