We recently got to see this film at our local Odeon cinema – The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Set soon after the Second World War it tells the poignant story of a female writer, who has recently written some best sellers. One member of the society writes to her to ask for help in finding a particular book and she invites herself to a meeting of the society. Initially she intends to write about what it actually was like on the island during the German occupation, but is drawn into the hidden secret of the society and their adopted little girl who was born during the war. The writer comes to the island of Guernsey by boat, leaving her new American fiance in London, but she gradually and unintentionally falls in live with one of the group. The most memorable scenes for me included where her fiance give her an ostentatious engagement ring, the scene where they are trying to heard pigs made me smile, and all the scenes which included Penelope Wilton (an actress I have enjoyed watching since I saw her in Clockwise with John Cleese). My rating for this particular film is 7 1/2 out of 10.
