The Guernsey Literary Drama

Ten TWT readers can win double passes to the high quality romance drama film The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society to be released in cinemas on April 19 courtesy of independent film distributors Studio Canal.

Starring the endearing Lily James alongside Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman, this is a nostalgic, heart-warming story skewing to females of all ages.

Inspired by the five-year German Occupation of the island of Guernsey during World War 2, it focuses on a group of interesting people who turned to books – and each other – during difficult times.

London, 1946: Juliet (Lily James), a charismatic and free-spirited writer receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey.

Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the island.

There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society including Dawsey (Michiel Huisman), the rugged and intriguing famer who wrote her the letter. As the secrets from their wartime past unfold, Juliet’s growing attachment to the island, the book club and her affection for Dawsey will change the course of her life forever.
