A historical drama set in World War Two is coming to the big screen tomorrow (Friday) and the Mercury has three pairs of tickets up for grabs.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society is based on the novel of the same name by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, and screenings begin at Weston’s Odeon cinema, in The Centre, on Friday.

The film follows the adventures of Juliet Ashton (Lily James) a journalist who decides to write about the book club held on the island of Guernsey while under German occupation.

When an idea for a book catches, Juliet goes to visit the island, making friends who bond with each other over of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost.

Fascinated by the stories of their lives during the World War Two, she strikes up what will ultimately become a life-changing bond with the island’s eccentric inhabitants, and may even find love while she is at it.

Michiel Huisman plays Dawsey Adams, Juliet’s first Guernsey correspondent and close friend.

Also starring are Matthew Goode, Katherine Parkinson, and British acting stalwart Sir Tom Courtenay.

It is the second World War Two film released this year which features James, after she also starred in Joe Wright’s Oscar-winning drama, Darkest Hour.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society is directed by Mike Newell, who was also head honcho on Four Weddings And A Funeral, Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire and Donnie Brasco.

Screenplay was penned by Kevin Hood, Don Roos and Thomas Bezucha who adopted Mary Ann and Annie’s novel to the silver screen.
