November 12, 2018
A confused and largely unmemorable affair, leaving an aftertaste as unpleasant as a bite out of the titular pie.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
August 10, 2018
The central love triangle is so undercooked that its slow consumption of the entire third act becomes its own enemy occupation, rendering the initial fascination of Guernsey's war story a painful casualty.

The film does not take risks and dangerously swims to being forgettable. [Full Review in Spanish]

It feels twee and in places just doesn't add up.

Good actors turn bad. Bad actors turn worse. It's pretty. It's polite. It's so anaemic you feel the urge to feed it a pint of Guinness.

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.

British security-blanket film-making at its finest.

Even fans of the source novel, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, might struggle with this photogenic but laboured adaptation.

This is a movie made with the cool calculation of a lab experiment.

The pity is that the film is directed by Mike Newell, who made one of the greatest romantic movies, Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Just reading the cutesy title made me lose the will to live halfway through.

Many will discredit the movie, but there is something oddly charming about it. It's twee and idealistic, believing there's good in everything and everyone, and today we all need a bit of daydreaming.

London author Juliet Ashton is charmed from her cosy digs, her dashing American fiancÚ and her solicitous publisher by a chance correspondence with a Channel Islands farmer.

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.

A delicious mouthful - if you enjoyed 'Their Finest', you will lap this up.

November 28, 2018
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.
