"The Bookshop" is a labor of love for Emily Mortimer. The English actress worked for years to bring the story to the big screen. She plays Florence Green, a free-spirited widow, who puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop -- the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town's less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs. Gamart, Harborough's vengeful, embittered alpha female who is a wannabe doyenne of the local arts scene.

"The Bookshop" is rated PG. For more information, visit the movie website.
