Reviews:
"Its subversive undercurrent, embodied in fine performances by Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy, is what makes it really interesting." - 11/19/2017 Hollywood Reporter


"[With] a fine, sensitive leading turn from Emily Mortimer..." - 02/15/2018 Variety


"[A] far more somber, measured outing than its quaint and cozy title may at first imply. Within its staid snapshot of aspiration versus tradition in small-town, postwar England, lies a profoundly resonant parable..." - 08/23/2018 Los Angeles Times


"Ms. Coixet highlights the undertow of subtle savagery in her genteel material, giving its picturesque setting -- an English coastal village in 1959 -- a more sinister, cynical cast." - 08/23/2018 New York Times


"Mostly, THE BOOKSHOP is a pretext to watch three great actors do their thing..." - 08/28/2018 Washington Post
