The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society is a 2018 historical romantic-drama film directed by Mike Newell and written by Don Roos and Tom Bezucha.
The screenplay is based on the 2008 novel of the same name, written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
The film stars Lily James, Michiel Huisman, Glen Powell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Katherine Parkinson, Matthew Goode, Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton.
Set in 1946, the plot follows a London-based writer who begins exchanging letters with residents on the island of Guernsey, which was under German occupation during World War II.
The story begins in 1946 London, where we meet Juliet Ashton (Lily James), who is looking for something serious about which to write.
Flashback sequences reveal that Juliet is working at resolving some of her own past issues.
An unexpected letter, a curiously named book club, a remote location and a pig farmer are the triggers that entice her to set sail for Guernsey, leaving behind a book signing tour and an American fiancé (Glen Powell), who has swept her off her feet.
