“Every location in this irresistible romantic mystery is like a little mini-break for the soul, every costume and piece of set-dressing...gorgeous, and every character a pleasure to keep company with, even the rotters.”

The Telegraph (UK)

Based on the best-selling novel, Lily James plays Juliet Ashton, a free-spirited writer in post-WWII London who receives a life-changing letter from Dawsey Adams (Michiel Huisman), a stranger living halfway across the English Channel on the island of Guernsey. Intrigued, Juliet resolves to travel there to meet Dawsey and the other members of the ‘Guernsey Lit’, intent on writing about the book club they formed under the shadow of the German occupation. 

An impeccable cast also features Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey), Tom Courtenay (45 Years), Matthew Goode (The Crown) and Jessica Brown-Findlay (This Beautiful Fantastic).
