In the aftermath of World War II, a writer forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war.
Multiple actresses were considered for the role of Juliet Ashton, including Michelle Dockery and Rebecca Ferguson. When Sir Kenneth Branagh was attached to direct, Kate Winslet was cast as Juliet. However, both dropped out. Winslet was replaced by Rosamund Pike, but she also left the project after it stalled in development.
Audience Member #1:
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Juliet Ashton: Always, yes. It's a perfect job. Sitting indoors, and always near a teapot.
Between 1:15:30 and 1:16:20 when walking from Ms Stimple's place to Isola's house, Juliet's shirt buttons change from large to small and back again.
During the end titles we hear bits of presentations at the society gatherings.
