The Booksellers ★★★½

Searching through piles and piles of books is something I can easily do for hours, without ever needing to buy anything (although you always end up coming away with something). So this doc cuts straight to something I love. It's extremely charming, and all of the collectors that are interviewed are real characters that you'd love to sit down with and talk books. I'm glad they were able to find some younger sellers so we get a small glimpse into what the future may hold. Still, it's hard not to see this movie with the pessimistic view that this trade will probably end sooner rather than later.
