I just saw a new British film called THE BOOKSHOP, set in the 1950's, about a young widow who decides to open a book store. Much to my surprise and delight, the writing of Ray Bradbury plays a small but important role in the story. The film is excellent, and I highly recommend it!
I thought the same thing when I saw it on Sunday. I think my review convinced at least two Bradbury fans/friends to go see it the next day. What I wrote:
Have you seen it? If not, rush to your nearest arthouse!
Ray B has four major cameos, and I don't just mean shots of his books.
It's clear that the writer or director is a fan (altho I imagine that it's prominent in the novel), because the scenes don't really have anything to do with the story itself, and yet, there they are. Over and over.
Further, I think you might just love this film.
