Studiocanal has sent over the first pics of a ravishing-looking Lily James in Mike Newell’s forthcoming “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society”.
The big screen adaptation of Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows’ international bestselling epistolary novel of the same name stars James (“Cinderella”) as journalist Juliet Ashton, a woman who forms a bond with a secret book society formed during German occupation of the Channel Islands during WWII.
The cast also features Michiel Huisman (”The Age of Adeline”, ”Game of Thrones”), Glen Powell (”Everybody Wants Some”, ”Hidden Figures”), Matthew Goode (”The Imitation Game”, ”Downton Abbey”), Jessica Brown Findlay (”Victor Frankenstein”, ”Downton Abbey”) with Tom Courtenay (”45 Years”, ”Doctor Zhivago”) and Penelope Wilton (”The BFG”, ”The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”).
In the aftermath of WWII, free-spirited journalist Juliet Ashton (Lily James) 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 wartime.
Published by Random House, the novel was a New York Times bestseller and sold 7.5 million copies in 37 territories.
