WATCH: Trailer released for Guernsey film

The full length trailer has been released for the Guernsey film, based on the well-known novel the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Studiocanal's film, starring Lily James and directed by Mike Newell, is due to be released in cinemas nationally, including in Guernsey at the Mallard, and across the UK, on the 20 April.

The trailer features shots of the Cornish coastline and areas of Dorset, where it was filmed, with locations chosen to closely represent Guernsey. There is one such shot representing Smith Street, and others of St Peter Port and the island's coastline. Members of the film crew visited Guernsey during production to take pictures to model their filming sets.

The novel itself is set in January 1946 as London emerges from the Second World War, and Guernsey starts to recover from the Occupation. The protagonist - an author played by Ms James - becomes interested in Guernsey and how it coped during the war years. Her character travels to the island to meet a group of people who lived under German rule and she becomes entangled in their lives. 

Economic Development has previously said it is hoping to use the film to boost tourism to the island.
