This is an elegant and offbeat comedy, beautifully written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce and directed in a light and sure footed style by Carl Hunter making his first feature film.
Set in 1959, a similar time to the recent “On Chesil Beach”, “The Bookshop” explores a different aspect of English manners and repressions of the time.
The film is adapted from the novel “Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem” (also published as “The Trial of Elizabeth Cree”) by London’s biographer Peter Ackroyd. Like Ackroyd’s book, it is a fictional murder mystery built around the historically factual and unsolved crimes of a Victorian serial killer in the East End of London, who was known as the Limehouse Golem.
Signature Entertainment has set a release date for highly anticipated, original family feature NORM OF THE NORTH. Norm will be Arctic shaking his way into cinemas on 18th March, 2016.
