This is definitely 'comfort food' for fans of period dramas like me, but fortunately a nutritious one. As a writer, one of the biggest appeal for me is how the movie is practically a wonderful love letter to the written word.
There's a cosiness to the word count guzzling "Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society", in a lie-back-and-think-of-postwar-England kind of way. It doesn't entirely lack grit, but it is very successful in its emotional manipulations.
I would highly recommend The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society whilst curled up with a blanket and a cup of tea on a dull afternoon. It won't shock or challenge you, but it will give you a sense of easygoing warmth.
