Movie News | New Period Drama Adaptation! ‘GUERNSEY’ stars Lily James

April 2, 2018 2 Comments

In case you missed it (though I’m sure eagle eyed period drama aficionados or loyal movie goers didn’t), today we’re chatting about the upcoming period drama Guernsey adaptation. Based on the novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, the film will bring together a talented cast that will also include some Downton Abbey reunions.

The film stars Lily James (Cinderella, Downton Abbey); Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey); Michiel Huisman (The Age of Adaline); Matthew Goode, and Jessica Brown-Findlay (both previously seen on Downton Abbey). Basically, this one has a cast that makes me want to see the film even if the plot sounded uninteresting. (Which, just to clear this up, it does not.) 

Shot in the U.K., the film is set to release in its native country in April, but hasn’t set a U.S. release date. Yet. What we do know is most recently Netflix acquired the U.S. rights to the film. With that in mind, I’m hopeful it won’t be too long a wait for those of us across the pond. 

Over on Silver Petticoat, I review the film’s detail (what we know of it), have the trailer in the post and talk about other fangirl-y things. You can find that post in full (via the link below). 

Tell me, have you read this novel? I haven’t… but am wondering; should I? I’m tempted to pick up the novel in the hopes I’d actually read it prior to the film’s eventual release. Tell me all your thoughts down below about this upcoming period drama Guernsey adaptation or drop a comment on Silver Petticoat. 

PS: the romance looks so pretty, and full of longing in this one… let’s hope the story follows appearances.

Anytime new period dramas pop up in my online perusals, I become a little excited. Some may even say overexcited. But then I admit, a period drama aficionado I am through and through, a badge I wear proudly.

Movie News! New Period Drama Adaptation – ‘GUERNSEY’ + TRAILER!

The period drama currently inspiring this reaction is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society or as it is sometimes simplified and known as Guernsey. A film that’s been a long time coming, there are articles citing this one as having been in production since 2010. Not only that, but various names over the years have been attached to star before the following names were cast. Continue Reading on Silver Petticoat Review →

    I've read this one twice and am super excited about the movie, which I think will probably make the romance aspect stronger than the book did. I wish it was airing in the US, but there is no release date for over here, only in the UK. I've been trying to figure out how to get a copy. As you haven't read the book, I'd definitely recommend it, Rissi! :)

      Haven't read the book (but I *need* to!) however, I would guess that of this story knowing the little I do. Here's hoping we both enjoy the film – and thanks for the recommendation. :)

      Netflix acquired the US rights, so hopefully it will show up here soon.
