THE GUERNSEY LIT­ER­ARY & POTATO PEEL PIE SO­CI­ETY

Exclusively British - - SHOPPING -

Nom­i­na­tions: Too early to spec­u­late but Di­rec­tor Mike Newell has a strong track record, re­ceiv­ing mul­ti­ple BAFTAS for Best Film and two Os­car nom­i­na­tions for the romantic com­edy Four Wed­dings and a Fu­neral, back in 1994. Based on a his­tor­i­cal novel by Mary Ann Shaf­fer and An­nie Bar­rows that was pub­lished in 2008. It shines a light on Guernsey’s oc­cu­pa­tion by the Ger­mans in WWII. The film’s lead­ing ac­tress Lily James and co-star Glen Pow­ell com­bine well to cre­ate a com­pelling romantic drama with an in­trigu­ing mys­tery at its core. With Guernsey and its is­lan­ders at the heart of the film, it’s poised to at­tract new visi­tors to ex­pe­ri­ence the is­land that moved pro­duc­ers to adapt the novel for the big screen.
