Movie Info

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers.

  • "The Booksellers" looks at where the trade has been, the psychology of why it has survived generations and how it can move forward. It's as warm and inviting as a good book.

  • "The Booksellers" shares a few of those stories and a little of that learning. And I have to tell you: It feels really good to be roaming those aisles of bookshelves again, even if it's just through a screen.

  • Though it opens with a quote from Susan Sontag invoking Jorge Luis Borges's belief... the film is not about the content, but the container - the tactile, redolent artifact essential to book lovers and sought by collectors.

  • Do not be misled by the comic charm of this film. It's a ghost story, brooded over by the rustling wraiths of bookstores dead and gone.

  • I finished the film and felt compelled to turn off the screen and pick up a book.
