Critic Reviews for The Bookshop
A fine, sensitive leading turn from Emily Mortimer helps shore up these quiet, lightly dust-covered proceedings, but can't quite put "The Bookshop" in the black.
Its subversive undercurrent, embodied in fine performances by Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy, is what makes it really interesting.
I'm not sure the story deserves to be told - the animosity towards the bookseller seems too petty to be worthy of drama.
Mortimer is wasted, Bill Nighy dreadful and Patricia Clarkson all at sea.
Following hard on the lamentable Book Club, here's another film that appears not to know what to do with the landscape of the printed word.
