A correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton (Lily James) and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi-occupied Guernsey Island. When an idea for a book catches Juliet, she goes to visit the island, making life-long friends and taking life changing steps along the way. This book is told by way of letters, and as the reader, you become enchanted by the writers of them and the love Juliet comes to feel for each of the Islanders; Dawsey Adams (Michiel Huisman), Amelia Maugery (Dame Penelope Wilton), Isola Pribby (Katherine Parkinson), Eben Ramsey (Sir Tom Courtenay), Kit (Florence Keen), and Elizabeth McKenna (Jessica Brown Findlay).Written by
When the parcel containing the manuscript of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society arrives in Guernsey, it is labeled "OHMS". This stands for "On His (Her) Majesty's Service" and is only used for mail sent from UK Government Departments. Since the parcel was posted by Juliet Aston, it would not have been labeled OHMS.

I'm only beautiful on the inside. You're beautiful on the outside as well, men do like that.
Do you not mind being alone?
I suppose, sometimes. But then I think how much sweeter it will be when my Heathcliff finally shows himself and how glad I'll be that I decided to wait for him.

I was intrigued by the title so thought give it a go. disappointingly there were no special effects, explosions or alien monsters just a simple story relayed to us by actors of all things,because of all this it will not qualify for any awards other than my own lowly opinion.
I laughed I cried, became angry and gave it the accolade of the best film I have seen for a long time, whatever tosh other people may say about this tale I enjoyed it, so lets have some more films with a story to tell without the bangs and bloodbaths
