Harrold Film Nights – What’s On
Friday November 23rd
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (12A) 124min. Historical Drama
A writer (Lily James) forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II, when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war.
Having the courage to reach for what you want is the essence of this engaging film that captures not only the imagination but also the heart. Adapted from the novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer, Four Weddings and a Funeral director Mike Newell uses his considerable skills to weave together a richly layered film that is both uplifting and moving. It encompasses a war story, a mystery tale and a love triangle, while instilling an enticing sense of place for its stunning Guernsey setting. Lily James shines as the protagonist, a writer searching for her milieu and direction in life. It’s delightful.” Urban Cinefile
“The handsome period design and likeable performers ensure it remains modestly engrossing, with Penelope Wilton offering by far the sharpest contribution as a grieving widow.” Radio Times
