The Lily James is Perpetually Appealing Society

2 years, 6 months ago at Mar 14 19:44
Lily James continues to impress me and shines with likability. The story itself is fine and the production as a whole is fine enough. The picture's title  ends up being a little more memorable than the movie itself.Rated 6.6/10

An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Mike Newell and since it was starring Lily James, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, with its title, I was expecting a rather cheesy vintage picture about some stuffy book club but I have to admit that the damned thing turned out to be not bad at all after all.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Mike Newell and since it was starring Lily James, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, with its title, I was expecting a rather cheesy vintage picture about some stuffy book club but I have to admit that the damned thing turned out to be not bad at all after all. Indeed, I actually didn’t know that the Guernsey Island had been occupied by the Nazis while the rest of the UK was free so it was really interesting to learn about this rather obscure page of history. I thought it was also quite brilliant that this group of people would start a book club as a social event providing a way to escape the daily horrors of the occupation and to simply meet some kindred spirits. Finally, the lovely Lily James ” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2018 (27 movies items)

" Netflix- 2hrs. 3min. First Viewing It's a perfectly likable and well-made film, but The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a bit too flat to engage with the audience. That flatness is, really, the one major quibble with the film; a mark against both the screenplay for never going further than it should, and the direction that adds no real vital signs to it. Aside from that, the cast is solid, the story interesting and the filmmaking competent. It's, essentially, a bland film that "

"This is a wonderful movie set just after WWII has ended. A female writer from London goes to the island of Guernsey in 1946 to find out more about a curiously named book society. She becomes enchanted with its idyllic village life and rural tranquility and how each member of the society has their own wartime story to tell. The movie contains multiple sub-stories which are a montage of war-time Guernsey. They include dark themes of Nazi collaboration, the trauma of children separated from famili"
