Three sentence movie reviews: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

http://www.impawards.com/2018/guernsey_literary_and_potato_peel_pie_society_ver2.html

Chock full of actors I enjoy (many fromĀ Downton Abbey), based on a book I quite liked, and featuring an interesting subject, this was a great example of a Sunday Afternoon Movie.* Lily James draws you in, and look! there’s Michiel Huisman, enjoyable in so many projects.** The stakes are somewhat high, but presented in a pleasant manner, and all things come out fine in the end.

Cost: Netflix Monthly Subscription ($7.99)
Where watched: at home, after an exhausting day

Also consider watching: Before We Go; Under the Tuscan Sun, The Grand Seduction

*The type of movie that is pleasant and soothing, best watched on a Sunday afternoon, before you start gearing up for the week.
**The Age of Adaline, Irreplaceable You, Treme

  1. Ooh it is rather Downton heavy! I didn’t want to see this until I did my reading, but I am not sure that’s going to happen (sigh- reader’s block). But I know it is one I would like.

    1. You didn’t wait to watch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before until you had read the book, so I think you are safe to watch this prior to book reading.
