One woman’s quest to write about the experiences of a war-torn island is explored in a new historical drama.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society follows journalist Juliet Ashton, played by Lily James, who decides to write about the book club held on the Channel island while it is under German occupation during World War Two.

The film, which is based on the novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, shows how Juliet begins the makings of a book as she meets new friends.

They create clear bonds over love, friendship and losing people during the war and, as Juliet starts to make a life-changing bond with the island’s inhabitants, she finds love.

James rose to fame as a supporting role in period drama series Downton Abbey before securing the eponymous role in Disney’s live action Cinderella.

She went on to star as Natasha Rostova in War & Peace before landing roles in two critically and commercially successful films – Baby Driver and Darkest Hour.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society will be at Clevedon’s Curzon cinema from tomorrow (Thursday) until May 16.
