Great Moments In Movie Shelves #162

The best-selling book turned Netflix movie The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is filled with things I love, things like Matthew Goode being possibly homosexual in sweater vests around lots of books and...
... and did I mention the sweaters? 

I do love sweaters. 
God I am ready for fall.

But sweaters and homosexuals aside (I never thought I'd type that sentence but here we are) there's one sequence in TGLAPPPS that realizes one of the great book-lover fantasies - one to rival the reveal in Beauty and the Beast, and a sister-wife to that infamous apocalyptic episode of The Twilight Zone. I speak of course of...

... the uncovering of an abandoned bookstore full of rare and beautiful books for the taking! Of course this bookstore was bombed by the Nazis so it's not all gold and glitter and Jane Austen hardcovers, but if one has to survive a war by eating potato peel desserts one ought to find a perk buried under all that rubble.

Yeah, I'd have to say if it was Glen Powell versus Michiel Huismen, I'd go with Powell.
