Based on the best-selling 2008 novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, this period drama from Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral) follows writer Juliet Ashton (Lily James) who, upon receiving a fan letter, travels to the island of Guernsey. The letter told her of a beloved book club – the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – whose love of literary fiction kept them going through the repressive occupation. With World War II just behind them, Juliet decides to write about the club’s experiences, gaining a deeper understanding of how the islanders survived Nazi rule.
