Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The
horizontal line

When a headstrong, engaged British writer (Lily James) leaves her American fiancé (Glen Powell) on the docks in 1946 to head to the island of Guernsey, which was occupied by the Nazis during WWII, to write an article for the publisher (Matthew Goode) of a London-based publication in this engaging, well-acted, poignant, romantic, 124-minute film based on the 2008 bestselling novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer and highlighted by wonderful cinematography, she discovers a fascinating story about the origins of the quirky-named book club as she interviews its members (Penelope Wilton, Tom Courtney, Katherine Parkinson, et al.) and unexpectedly finds herself attracted to handsome farmer (Michael Huisman) who is caring for a young girl (Florence Keen) whose mother (Jessica Brown Findlay) was the founder of the literary society.
