The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society ★★★½

I know that I should just be happy that we get half stars as an option here on Letterboxd, but right now I could really use quarter ones because 3.75 feels so right for this film. I don't know how else to account for the fact that while this was far from perfect, it was still so beautiful and really just touched my heart. The pacing could've been better, parts of the plot and even some of the character relationships could've been fleshed out more. Nevertheless, I was so charmed by the visuals and the performances that none of that really mattered when it came to how this movie made me feel. Immediately added to the list of period films that feel like they're wrapping me up in warm hugs.
