London, 1946. A charismatic and free-spirited writer gets a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, she decides to visit the island and meets the delightfully eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including Dawsey , the rugged and intriguing farmer 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. – Rotten Tomatoes
