The story begins in 1946 London, where we meet Juliet Ashton (Lily James), who is looking for something serious about which to write. Flashback sequences reveal that Juliet is working at resolving some of her own past issues. An unexpected letter; a curiously named book club; a remote location and a pig farmer are the triggers that entice her to set sail for Guernsey, leaving behind a book signing tour and an American fiancé (Glen Powell), who has swept her off her feet.  Also starring Penelope Wilton, Tom Courtenay and Matthew Goode.

If the film’s intriguing title gives you an appetite, take the leap and have a bite. Having the courage to reach for what you want is the essence of this engaging film that captures not only the imagination but also the heart. Adapted from the novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer, Four Weddings and a Funeral director Mike Newell uses his considerable skills to weave together a richly layered film that is both uplifting and moving. It encompasses a war story, a mystery tale and a love triangle, while instilling an enticing sense of place for its stunning Guernsey setting.  It’s delightful.”  Urban Cinefile

“The handsome period design and likeable performers ensure it remains modestly engrossing, with Penelope Wilton offering by far the sharpest contribution as a grieving widow.”  Radio Times

“It is a confection in every sense, but plump with natural sweetness.”  The Telegraph
