"A gentle sleeper"

Set immediately post war this is a charming story about life in occupied Guernsey. Told through the more innocent eyes of a young reporter researching the odd title of the Literary and Potato Peel Society. It draws out stories that participants would wish had never occurred or needed to remain hidden. A superb cast in all roles.

Description

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 (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 beautiful story of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost.

Critics Reviews of The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Society:

  • “Buoyed by a reliably appealing star turn from James, this handsome tearjerker mostly sidesteps the tweeness of its title to become, somehow, both an old-fashioned romance and a detective story trumpeting gender equality.” – Harry Windsor, Hollywood Reporter
  • “The result is a rewarding and entertaining slice of British fare you can really get your teeth into.” – Chris Hunneysett, Daily Mirror (UK)
  • “As a title, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society might be a mouthful, but it couldn't suit this warm, nostalgic post-war drama better.” – Sarah Ward, ArtsHub
