FILM NIGHT Friday 23 November – The Bookshop (PG). 7.30pm in the Parish Hall.

Glamorous widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative English seaside town, where everyone is excessively polite to everyone else, but which is actually a seething nest of malice, gossip and backbiting..

While bringing about a cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy). Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel, this film is brilliantly directed by Isabel Coixet .
