Lensing by DP Zac Nicholson (The Death of Stalin) is slickly expansive. soaring over island cliffs (actually Cornwall and Devon), while production designer James Merifield and costume designer Charlotte Walter are refreshingly unafraid of color in evoking the 40s - Hollywood Reporter

His (Mike Newell) warm, light touch, coupled with Zac Nicholson’s lush, evocative cinematography (with ruggedly gorgeous Devon and Cornwall filling in for Guernsey as a location), make this idyll a pleasure. It’s simply a movie that makes you feel welcome. - Time
