The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Mike Newell

In the very safe hands of Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows’s beloved historical novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society comes to the big screen.

"Fans of Downton Abbey will be happy..."

London, 1946. Juliet (Lily James), a charismatic and free-spirited writer, receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the island. There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including Dawsey (Dutch actor Michiel Huisman), the rugged and intriguing farmer who wrote her the letter. As the secrets from their wartime past unfold, Juliet's growing attachment to the island, the book club and her affection for Dawsey will change the course of her life forever.

A romantic story about courage, loyalty and love couldn’t be more perfect for springtime cinema viewing. Fans of Downton Abbey will be happy too to see several familiar faces joining alumni James in this charming ensemble cast including Matthew Goode, Jessica Brown Findlay and the wonderful Penelope Wilton
