Unbearably dull, frustratingly inert, and laughably underwritten, Spanish writer-director Isabel Coixet’s frankly embarrassing British period piece drama The Bookstore might be the most underwhelming and least necessary film of the year.

The Toronto International Film Festival is a tremendous annual event for a lot of different reasons, but one of the best parts of the festival is the chance to meet great Canadian filmmakers who often don’t get the attention they deserve. At this year’s festival, one of my highlights was the opportunity to interview writer and director Ruba Nadda, who was at the festival for her latest feature film, Cairo Time, which stars Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Siddig in a drama about a married woman who finds love while on vacation.
