In which I squeal over a trailer (!!!)


TIME TO FREAK OUT BECAUSE ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVOURITE BOOKS HAS A MOVIE NOW AND THE TRAILER LOOKS SO DOGGONE GOOD. (Like, surprisingly good.)


WATCH IT AND WE CAN TALK.

0:03 -- I already love this. Look at the London-esque-ness
0:06 -- LILY JAMES AND TYPEWRITERS YES PLEASE
0:09 -- Guys the costumes in this movie are going to slay, just look at that yellow silk dress. And her red lipstick. And her hair. Ahh, post WW2 costumes are my favourite. *heart eyes*
0:14 -- IT'S HIM!!!! He literally makes the best Sidney ever; he looks just like Sidney should look. (Ohhh, and that's two Dowton Abbey actors in it already!)
 0:19 -- YES. I Like The Way He Looks
0:20 -- ahhhhhh the letters ahh I love this story so stinkin much guys there's a movie :-)
0:29 - SYBIL IS IN THIS
0:34 -- "I'll finally have something serious to write" (Reminding me that this is a movie all about a writer and it's gonna be so good)
0:39 -- She arrives at Guernsey!! It's so beautiful.
0:42 -- Penelope Wilson! FOUR DOWNTON ACTORS (yes haha. The more there are, the more I am excited to watch this.)
0:48 -- "I have yet to meet him" *knock on the door* *Mr Adams comes in* I LOVE THESE TWO
1:07 -- "There's more to that story"... DUN DUN DUNNNNNN
1:19 -- Sybil makes the best Elizabeth. AMEN.
1:27 -- "I've seen things I never thought could happen - happen" *chills*
1:36 -- I like this couple. Just fyi.
1:45 -- He's holding a pig and they're smiling at each other #GUYS 
1:53 -- This outfit 
1:56 -- "Books do have the power to bring people together" *yesyes*
2:08 -- Enjoying a slice of potato peel pie... LOL
2:20 -- "Gosh, quite a mouthful" <<< Our thoughts exactly, but that's why we love the title. She went for it.

  5. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you so much for this post, Naomi! I'd seen pics of those two main actors in connection with the book, but I hadn't actually verified that a movie was actually in the works -- GAHHH!!!! Now I'll get to re-read the book in preparation for the movie. :)

    This trailer looks VERY VERY GOOD AND MOST SATISFACTORY INDEED. Jessica Brown Findlay isn't who I would have cast for Elizabeth, but hey, I'm more than down for it. AND LILY JAMES AND MATTHEW GOODE. YES.

    Thanks for this post, again. :) Hope you're doing wonderfully!

  13. I haven't even read this yet and the trailer looks exciting. :) In your opinion, would the book be a good candidate for an audiobook? I have more time to listen than read these days, but there are some books which really can't be enjoyed if you don't physically read them.

    1. I never listen to audio books so it's hard for me to answer this... The book is basically a compilation of letters so maybe reading? Although on the other hand, getting read letters aloud is also nice. So... No idea. Do what you have most time for!!! 😊 Definitely recommend the book though!

    2. Okay, having read the book I will now say that Dawsey looks great, Elizabeth looks great, but I'm not sure about Lily James as Juliette! Or 100% sold on Amelia. I'm really excited to see it though! Trying to find release dates for the U.S.....
