Emily Mortimer talks about her new movie 'The Bookshop'Actress Emily Mortimer premiered her new movie 'The Bookshop' recently, as part of the Berlin International Film Festival. The picture follows a 1950s widow who decides to open the title store in her small town, but struggles to keep it running. In this exclusive interview, Emily reveals that, much like her character, she's learned to be okay with failure.
Set in a small town in 1959 England, The Bookshop (2017) is the movie about a woman who decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop, a decision which becomes a political minefield.
The Bookshop (2017) is based on the novel by Penelope Fitzgerald, and it was written and directed by Isabel Coixet.
Coixet is mostly known for her awarded movie My Life Without Me (2003), about a woman who battles with cancer.
The Bookshop (2017) is a tale of another strong woman, and her fight against short-minded community.
Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson, Hunter Tremayne and Honor Kneafsey star in The Bookshop (2017).
