The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society

Four Weddings and a Funeral director Mike Newell returns with this charming adaptation of the best-selling novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. 

London, 1946. Juliet (Lily James, Darkest Hour), 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.
