A film about a book club in the island of Guernsey* created in 1941 during the German Occupation makes for irresistible entertainment. Throw in a mystery and love story and you are in for two hours of bliss.
*It is the second largest of the Channel Islands, an island group roughly north of Saint-Malo and the Cotentin Peninsula. The jurisdiction consists of ten parishes on the island of Guernsey, three other inhabited islands (Herm, Jethou and Lihou), and many small islets and rocks.
It is not part of the United Kingdom, although defence and some aspects of international relations are managed by the UK. Although the bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey are often referred to collectively as the Channel Islands, the “Channel Islands” are not a constitutional or political unit. Jersey has a separate relationship to the Crown from the other Crown dependencies of Guernsey and the Isle of Man, although all are held by the monarch of the United Kingdom.
