Set in 1946 Lily James plays free-spirited journalist Juliet Ashton, who 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 during WWII.  Juliet »

First Look: Lily James in Mike Newell’s ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’

Studiocanal has unveiled the first images of Lily James in Mike Newell’s “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society,” which has completed principal photography in the U.K. The “Cinderella” actress stars in the romantic drama opposite Dutch-born actor Michiel Huisman.

James plays a free-spirited journalist who forms a life-changing bond with the eccentric society when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the German occupation of Guernsey during World War II. Huisman, who starred opposite Blake Lively in 2015’s “The Age of Adaline” and on television in HBO’s “Treme” and “Game of Thrones,” plays James’ love interest – the first contact she makes with the island and eponymous society.

Glen Powell, Matthew Goode, Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton co-star in the film, which was adapted from the 2008 novel, written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, by U.S. writer and filmmaker Don Roos. »
