Based on the international bestseller by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, comes the much anticipated big-screen adaptation starring Lily James (The Darkest HourDownton Abbey) and Michiel Huisman (The Age of Adeline).

London, 1946. Juliet (Lily James), a charismatic and free-spirited writer receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the island. There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including Dawsey (Michiel Huisman), the rugged and intriguing famer who wrote her the letter.

As the secrets from their wartime past unfold, Juliet’s growing attachment to the island, the book club and her affection for Dawsey will change the course of her life forever.

From the director of Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society also stars Tom Courtenay and Downton Abbey’s Penelope Wilton, Jessica Brown Findlay and Matthew Goode.
