The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society (2018) Film Review

World War 2 has ended, and writer Elizabeth McKenna (Jessica Brown Findlay), who was writing a column trying to raise the spirits of the English during the war, is looking for a new project.  She receives a letter from a resident of Guernsey, a channel island that was occupied by the Germans for much of the war, and she becomes intrigued and visits to see if she can tell their story.

I loved this book, and this film captures the mixture of stoicism, humour, charm and sadness of the book. It’s a really lovely watch.
