Movies: The Bookshop

The Bookshop, the highly anticipated film adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald's novel that "played in Berlin and was the winner of three Goya awards in Spain," has been acquired for U.S. distribution by Greenwich Entertainment, Deadline reported. Written and directed by Isabel Coixet (Learning to Drive), the film stars Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy and Patricia Clarkson. Greenwich Entertainment will release the title in the U.S. on August 24.

"We've always admired Isabel's work and her great leads so it's a special treat to have the opportunity to handle the U.S. release of this utterly charming and resonant ode to reading and bookshops," said Greenwich's co-managing director Ed Arentz.
