The first trailer has been released of the new adaptation of the bestselling novel The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society.
Starring Lily James in the title role, The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society follows a writer who forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war.
THE GUERNSEY LITERARY & POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY
Directed by Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Harry Potter, Love in the Time of Cholers) the film stars Lily James, Jessica Brown Findlay, Matthew Goode and several other well known British actors.
The film opens in the UK on April 20th and presumably in the USA later this year.
Have you read the book? Are you looking forward to this film? I think it looks quite good!
Daniella Bernett says
I can’t wait to see the film. I loved the book. Lily James is a wonderful actress
I have read the book and I loved it! I hope the film makes it across the pond soon.
Susan Sutton says
It’s a wonderful book! I’m really looking forward to the movie.
I have read the book too many times to count. It’s one of my favorite reads. Sadly, i will only be in England until April 4. I’ll have to wait and wait and wait……. not patiently
I love this book. I had no idea it was being made into a movie. Such a glorious cast. Can’t wait to see it.
I LOVE the book! So glad they’re making a movie – but it will be hard to get the people in my imagination to adjust to the people in the movie.
Have read the book, led discussion in book club, visited the island and the many spots mentioned in the book, even looked up names mentioned in it–some are still there, met a few people who experienced that time, tried some of the recipes– the potato peel pie wouldn’t be a favorite. Looking SO forward to seeing the movie.
