The Geurnsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society
This is the story of Juliet Ashton, a young author who begins a correspondence with a pig farmer on Geurnsey Island, who tells her about how they formed their bookclub during the German occupation. Going to the island she meets the bookclub members and finds her life about to change.
The movie was very charming and sweet and there was nothing I would change. Filled with Downton Abbey faces, beautiful rural and village scenery, and shots of wartime London every design detail was perfect. The clothes, makeup and hairstyles were the right shade of muted and worn and just seemed lived in and made me warm and happy.
There were tears from some of the older ladies around me, although I didn't sniffle it was touching and memorable. 5/5
