In the aftermath of World War II, a writer forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war. Based on the best-selling novel, this film sees Lily James play free-spirited writer Juliet Ashton, who forms a life-changing bond with the delightful and eccentric Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the occupation of Guernsey in WWII.
Sumptuously filmed and beautifully acted, it blends historical insight into a finely-crafted tale of mystery and romance. It is an engaging detective story, a study of survival under wartime occupation, and a tale of friendship, romance, and love of literature.
