The Guernsey Potato Peel Pie Society: With Lily James & Matthew (too) Goode

Lily James as Juliet in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

When reader Valerie commented on my Dunkirk/Zudcoote post recently that Dunkirk itself was part of Nazi-occupied rather than Vichy-occupied France, I got to thinking that The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is set in Guernsey, one of the British Channel Islands that was also occupied by the Nazis for five long years during WWII.

Then I got to thinking about the cast as the movie is due out sometime next year, and that got me thinking about Matthew Goode who is playing Sidney Stark, Juliet's publisher in the movie. If you read the book, you know who he is, and likely you share my frustration with his character's relationship with Juliet!

I looked up Matthew Goode but so far no photos of the Downton Abbey heartthrob from the Guernsey movie set. But I did find this which hearkens back to The Imitation Game and as we're having a heatwave here in L.A., and I'm feeling especially lacking in energy, I thought it made a fine Sunday Slacker for you. It's via Buzzfeed and in light of floods, and fires and politics, it's just a bit of fluff for you to enjoy!
