Slip on a comfy sweater and put on a kettle of tea, it's the trailer for The Bookshop.
Based on the 1959 novel, the film stars Emily Mortimer (The Party) as a widow who opens up a bookshop in an old historical building in a small coastal town. She faces opposition at every turn, including from wealthy arts patron Mrs. Gamart (Patricia Clarkson). But she finds companionship and support from her eccentric neighbor (Bill Nighy), who is literally described as not the same "after the tragic death of his beloved wife." (That is actually a line of dialogue spoken here.)
While the film looks like something that would pop up on Netflix after mindlessly scrolling, or the movie your grandmother would rave about after calling to check in on her, it's actually received a lot of acclaim, particularly in Spain. Directed by Barcelona native Isabel Coixet, the film won Best Film, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Goyas, Spain's equivalent of the Oscars.
The Bookshop opens in limited release on Friday, August 24.
