    A quiet understated movie about challenging the status quo and the powers that be. In recent days we have seen power struggles played out in a very overt ways. But people who have power have not always gotten their way with guns or brute force. In this movie, we see the genteel class in beautiful clothes and pearls and seemingly perfect manners imposing their will on others using their ability to yield their influences behind the scenes. Our protagonist is not able to overcome her antagonist, but In the end though, but her influence on a younger person allows her vision to be eventually be carried out. Sometimes this movie was a bit too quiet and a bit too slow, but it still won me over in the end.

    Yeah. An odd film. Ending was incongruous with the tone of the film.

    This movie is like a slice of real life. In the main, it's a story of an ordinary, hard working person up against power, set in a charming seaside town. It's sweet and tragic. People move in and out of the story without fanfare, like in real life. It starts off slow, but then it gets interesting. The viewers become invested in the woman's dream of her bookshop, of her love for the books and stories. And alarmed at the increasing storm brewing against her. The scenes between Florence and Mr. Brandish are moving, as one would expect when it's Nighy and Mortimer. There are no car chases, characters in comic book outfits, or monsters. It's just a wonderful little movie that is more like something that is really happening in your village, rather than a movie. I love movies like this, when they're well done, like this one.

    I thought this movie was really good. Haven't cried that hard at an ending in quite a while. As an English major in college I was quite impressed.
