Trailer for "The Bookshop"
This 2017 film received little U.S. attention, but was nominated for and won multiple awards from European film societies. This is not a "Hollywood" movie - it has no explosions, no nudity or eroticism, no special effects, and - notably - no "storybook ending" (which might have contributed to a mediocre Rotten Tomatoes score).
What it does have is fine performances by Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy, and a compelling narrative storyline. Well worth a watch, IMHO, especially if you love books.
