scheduled film for November, Walk Like a Panther, is
no longer available for screening, but we are delighted to be
showing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

screenplay is based on the 2008 award-winning novel of the same
name, written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. The film
stars Lily James, Michiel Huisman, Glen Powell, Jessica Brown
Findlay, Katherine Parkinson, Matthew Goode, Tom Courtenay and
in 1946, the plot follows Juliet (Lily James), a charismatic
and free-spirited writer who receives a letter from a member
of a mysterious literary club started during the War in German-occupied
Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the
island. There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of
the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including
Dawsey (Michiel Huisman), the rugged and intriguing farmer who
wrote her the letter. As the secrets from their wartime past
unfold, Juliet begins to build a picture of what it was like
during the occupation. She forms an unexpected bond with the
residents of the island when she decides to write a book about
their experiences during the war. Her growing attachment to
the island, the book club and her affection for Dawsey will
change the course of her life forever.
film received very positive reviews from critics. The Daily
Telegraph said "Mike Newell’s adaptation of Mary Ann Shaffer
and Annie Barrows’s epistolary novel is a film you don’t spend
time with so much as spend time in: every
location in this irresistible romantic mystery is like a little
mini-break for the soul, every costume and piece of set-dressing
nibble-ably gorgeous, and every character a pleasure to keep
company with, even the rotters."
Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society is being shown
in The Corn Exchange on Friday 23rd November 2018 at 7.30pm
