Romantic drama is Lingfield film for Armistice Sunday


The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society is the Remembrance Sunday movie at Flix in the Stix – Lingfield’s film club at the Lingfield and Dormansland Community Centre.

Said by some to be old-school and old-fashioned entertainment, it’s a romantic drama bursting with scenic vistas and earnest charm that contains a little mystery to keep us involved.

It is London, 1946 and Juliet Ashton (Lily James), a charismatic and free-spirited writer receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the island.

There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including Dawsey (Michiel Huisman), the rugged and intriguing farmer who wrote her the letter. As the secrets from their wartime past unfold, Juliet’s growing attachment to the island, the book club and her affection for Dawsey will change the course of her life forever.

Tom Courtney and Penelope Wilton are also in the cast.

Tickets from the community centre or Robert Leech estate agent, in High Street , Lingfield – £5.

The film starts at 3.30pm
