The Bookshop Screening
To carry on Book Fest, Portsmouth Film Society is screening The Bookshop.
Synopsis: England: 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising 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). As Florence’s obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?

Time: 7:00 pm- 9:00 pm
Location: Eldon Building, Winston Churchill Avenue, PO1 2DJ, Portsmouth
