Dir: Mike Newell - HD Digital presentation - 2 hrs 3 mins - UK 2018 In   1946   a   London-based   writer   begins   exchanging   letters   with   residents on   the   island   of   Guernsey,   which   was   German-occupied   during   WWII. Feeling   compelled   to   visit   the   island,   she   starts   to   get   a   picture   of   what   it was like during the occupation. What   might   be   seen   by   some   as   super   sweet   and   predictable   is   leavened by   the   underlying   pathos   of   wartime,   an   alluring   mystery,   and   stunning photography.    “The    Guernsey    Literary    and    Potato    Peel    Pie    Society” reunites   several   members   of   the   Downton   Abbey   cast,   with   Lily   James (seemingly   the   breakout   star   of   that   series,   with   multiple   starring   roles   in big   studio   movies)   solid   in   the   role.   Featured   characters   are   uniformly first-rate,   with   the   reliable   Tom   Courtenay   and   Penelope   Wilton   terrific as    always.    Mike    Newell,    notable    for    other    fine    period    films    (Great Expectations,   Enchanted   April),   delivers   both   the   emotional   goods   and the visuals. Based   on   (and   true   to)   the   best   selling   novel   by   Mary   Ann   Shaffer   and Annie Barrows.
