Worth a Guernsey.

Principal photography has wrapped on Mike Newell’s adaptation of The Guernsey Literary  and Potato Peel Pie Society, and Studiocanal have marked the occasion by releasing the first images of actors Lily James and Michiel Huisman in the main roles.

Based on the best-selling novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, the film sees Lily James as “…free-spirited journalist Juliet Ashton, who 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 the occupation of Guernsey during WWII. Juliet’s first contact with the island and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is with Dawsey Adams, played by Michael Huisman.”

Glen Powell (Everybody Wants Some, Hidden Figures), Matthew Goode (The Imitation Game, Downton Abbey), Jessica Brown Findlay (Victor Frankenstein, Downton Abbey), Tom Courtenay (45 Years, Doctor Zhivago) and Penelope Wilton (The BFG, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) co-star.
