I expect I'm the last person to have seen or heard of this, since I'm impervious to the Oscars and often miss word-of-mouth recommendations. But last night, in the spirit of conspiring to open our own bookstore, two friends of mine sat me down and showed me this film. It won Best Animated Short of 2011, and it moved me almost to tears of delight. Not least because it combines two things I adore, books and Buster Keaton (although the latter is more an inspiration than an actual presence). If you haven't watched this yet, let me tempt you to set aside fifteen minutes and spend it in a magical otherworld where books are a calling and a source of enchantment.
