Critic Reviews for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

All Critics (72) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (58) | Rotten (14)

  • The movie is comfort food through and through, as wholesome and predictable as a Sunday roast and as sickly sweet as sticky toffee pudding.

    August 10, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Though the subject matter could've been developed into a more challenging and provocative yarn, this film's chief aim is escapism.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A movie... you don't so much watch as wear like a slanket.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • An old-school, old-fashioned entertainment, a romantic drama bursting with scenic vistas and earnest charm that contains just enough mystery to keep us involved.

    August 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • This handsomely shot, elegant and engaging film by and large avoids the cloying winsomeness of its title to paint a vivid portrait of an era...

    April 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Even fans of the source novel, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, might struggle with this photogenic but laboured adaptation.

    April 22, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
