Critic Reviews of "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"VarietyApril 18, 2018
They've disentangled the novel's dramatic and romantic complications to a fault; if it's possible to merely amble in place, that's what the storytelling in "Guernsey" does for protracted stretches of screen time.Hollywood ReporterApril 13, 2018
Buoyed by a reliably appealing star turn from James, this handsome tearjerker mostly sidesteps the tweeness of its title to become, somehow, both an old-fashioned romance and a detective story trumpeting gender equality.The Straits Times (Singapore)May 08, 2018
This film adaptation of a popular novel begins as a feather-light piece of escapism, but gains unexpected pathos mid-way.Matt's Movie ReviewsMay 05, 2018
The Guernsey Literary Pie and Potato Pie Society may be a mouthful of a title, yet the film is nourishment for the heart and soul.ArtsHubMay 03, 2018
As a title, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society might be a mouthful, but it couldn't suit this warm, nostalgic post-war drama better.Stuff.co.nzApril 26, 2018
Yes, some of the narrative twists are a bit creak... but there's enough drama and feel-good factor to leave you feeling, unlike sampling the potentially unctuous pastry of the title, more than satisfied.Shadows on the WallApril 25, 2018
Winningly warm and smiley.London Evening StandardApril 25, 2018
This handsomely shot, elegant and engaging film by and large avoids the cloying winsomeness of its title to paint a vivid portrait of an era...TrespassApril 24, 2018
This is a sweet, well-shot and well-acted piece drawn from a thoughtful script.Sunday Times (UK)April 23, 2018
It could surely have told a better-focused story.Daily Mirror (UK)April 23, 2018
The result is a rewarding and entertaining slice of British fare you can really get your teeth into.The Arts DeskApril 23, 2018
This is destined to fill a rainy afternoon between Christmas and New Year.
