MVH — The Bookshop Fri 15th March 2019
Based on the novel of the same name and set during the late 1950s, the film tells the story of how a young widow, Florence Green (Emily Mortimer), decides to open a bookshop in a small East Anglian coastal town.
For her premises Florence acquires the Old House, a damp and abandoned property that has been empty for many years, and sets about refurbishing it. She begins to see success with her new enterprise bringing a cultural renaissance to the town. However, one particular influential and ruthless local resident wants the building for her own pet project. Aided by a reclusive book-loving widower, Florence realises she has some difficult decisions to make.
Also stars: Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson and Frances Barber.
Doors open at 7.00pm; show starts at 7.30pm in the village hall. Refreshments are on sale. Tickets £7 are available at the door.
