Finally, the brilliant novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer is coming to Netflix!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society movie adaptation has been a long time coming. Rumors of a film started as soon as the book hit the bestseller lists and became a book-club darling; and now, the wait is finally over.
The novel, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows was an instant hit after its first published run in 2008. Mostly told through letter correspondence, the book depicts how a small community survived the German occupation during World War II. Despite the heavy subject matter, the book is surprisingly light and overall, a wonderful read.
Starring Lily James, Matthew Goode, Michiel Huisman, and Jessica Brown Findlay, the trailer is visually stunning and seems to follows the tone of the novel. Watch the trailer and keep an eye out for the film’s release on Netflix!
