The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

JUGEMテーマ:映画



 “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”
I’m going to talk about a movie. The title is “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”, a very long title.
Now, do you know about the island named “Guernsey” in English Channel? It is very close to France (about 20km) and far from Britain (120km), but it’s a Britain’s territory since 11th century (The Norman Conquest). But British Army gave up the defense of that island as soon as German invaded France on World War .
Two years flew past since the war ended, English writer Juliet got a letter from a man living in Guernsey. This dairy farmer, Dawsey, asked to find out Charles Lamb’s book and explained the unique book club. Juliet was very interested in that letter and wanted to see the members of “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”.
Juliet got engaged to a rich American publisher Mark just before her trip to Guernsey. She was confused at the fact the society members kept secret about the society and the founder Elizabeth. We can imagine a secret tragedy in this island under martial law by German.
 Elizabeth had a baby between a young German doctor and now her three-year-old girl is raised by Dawsey and the members. They say Elizabeth was caught by German Army during the war and she is missing now in the continent. Elizabeth was always strict to others and Germans even during the occupation. They say she was arrested and sent to the concentration camp because she condemned German troop’s conducts. Juliet wanted to write about this book club but the members rejected it. Soon it turned out that Elizabeth was killed by German in the camp.
At any rate Juliet broke up to Mark. Dawsey asked to marry her. She also loved him and accepted it. They will raise Kid, a little girl, together. We are happy to celebrate the arrival of a new romance.
