Dir: Mike Newell
Starring: Lily James and Matthew Goode
In the aftermath of World War II, a writer forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war
Far more traditional and straightforward than its unwieldy title, taken from the eponymous 2006 novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, this historical drama was mostly well received. There is a scene filmed at Princes Wharf in Bristol which stands in for Weymouth Harbour and some items of rolling stock belonging to the Bristol Harbour Railway can be seen. Most notable by its presence here is Avonside 0-6-0ST Works No.1764, though it is only briefly visible in one shot. Thanks to T.W. for the screenshots.
