THE GUERNSEY LITERARY & POTATO PEEL SOCIETY
Cast: Lily James, Katherine Parkinson & Penelope Wilson Director: Mike Newell
Juliet Ashton (James) is a free-spirited, successful writer living in post-war London. Despite the success of her recent novel, she is struggling to find inspiration for her writing after the harsh experiences of the war. When she receives an unexpected letter from a Guernsey farmer named Dawsey Adams (Michiel Huisman), Juliet impulsively leaves for Guernsey, where she hopes to write about the curiously named book club that Dawsey has written to her about, formed by his fellow islanders under the German occupation in WW2. As a lifelong bond forms between this unlikely group of friends, Juliet soon realises that the society is hiding a heart-breaking secret.
