New US Trailer for 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society'
"Hungry for some romance, novels, and a slice of potato peel pie?" Then watch this new US trailer for a film titled The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, based on the book of the same name, arriving on Netflix in the US this August. This is the latest film from veteran English director Mike Newell, who hasn't done much since his 2012 adaptation of Great Expectations. The always-impressive Lily James stars in Guernsey as a young journalist who forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island (Google Maps) in the aftermath of WWII when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war. The title is a reference to the book club that she befriends on the island. The cast includes Jessica Brown Findlay, Matthew Goode, Michiel Huisman, Katherine Parkinson, Glen Powell, Tom Courtenay, and Penelope Wilton. This looks emotional and charming, perfect for a nice cry watch.
