A slight story to begin with...and one that has displeased many an unloved, cold-bloodied critic! Well...not this one. For this is a film about love...from fratenizing with the enemy to dalliances with those of a less equal station...this is love of the forbidden kind!!!
And...in a small, almost comatose, little town, 'forbidden' is just the feast that the gossip-hungry devour with unbridled passion. So...sit back and enjoy as this not-so-slight story unfurls...against a backdrop of gentility and shame.
It's quintessentially all pie, books and charm...served with great big glutinous dollops of eccentricity.
Free-spirited writer Juliet Ashton forms a life-changing bond with the delightful and eccentric Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the occupation of Guernsey in WWII.
