In the documentary Hello, Bookstore, a small Massachusetts shop is observed over an extended period as Covid-19 threatens to close it forever. Both simple and touching, the documentary mostly lives in the quaint store with the owner, Tannenbaum, as he makes not-so-small talk with customers. He’ll tell them a story if they have the time. Two if they acquiesce. He’s a great orator. Before books, people told each other stories. It’s evident that Tannenbaum would have fitted right in.
