    ITEM#: 10690151

    Academy-Award winning actress Renee Zellweger (COLD MOUNTAIN) stars as the best-selling children's author and illustrator Beatrix Potter in the biopic MISS POTTER. Set in Victorian England, the film follows Potter's life, from a little girl with a wild imagination and a fascination for woodland animals to an independent young woman in pursuit of a career in illustration and storytelling, despite the urging of her domineering mother to follow in her footsteps in high society. After struggling to find a publisher who would take her ideas and talent seriously, Miss Potter finally landed a chance with Frederick Warne & Company. While she worked diligently with her publisher--the youngest of the Warne brothers, Norman (Ewan McGregor)--on her debut book, THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT, the two fell in love and became secretly engaged. They continued to work together on the follow-up books, which would make her one of the most beloved and bestselling authors of all time. Zellweger lights up the screen with her portrayal as Potter, revealing that the woman who hid behind the children's books led a fascinating and sometimes dramatic life. The film celebrates Potter's creativity and innovation, illustrating how she was a woman ahead of her time who--despite her high social standing--still took pleasure in the simple things in life. Zellweger and McGregor (MOULIN ROUGE) have tremendous on-screen chemistry, and Emily Watson (BREAKING THE WAVES), who plays Norman's sister Millie, contributes a fantastic supporting-role performance.

      Well written, well acted and well directed. The whole enchilada. A moving story that made me smile and made me cry. The characters were well defined and the acting superb. A wonder it was not heard of at the award shows. The life of Miss Beatrice Potter shows a woman of courage and determination. Willing to step outside of the boundries of her times.

      This is a wonderful family movie. The very best part is that it is the lifes story of the writer. It should have gotten better reviews for it is truly a keeper in my library.

    • A surprisingly delightful movie.
      Verified Purchase

      I normally try to avoid movies with Renee Zellweger, as her face kind of bothers me and I have a hard time listening to her without wanting to strike her through my tv. This movie, however, has made me more tolerant of her, and I found myself enjoying it despite her, possibly even because of her. This does not mean I'm buying every RZ flick ever made, or even looking them up on Netflix, but I found myself surprised and delighted by Miss Potter. A sure win for anyone trying to stomach any RZ films, and perhaps even enjoy them.

      Verified Purchase

      Don't know how much of this is fiction but I enjoyed it a lot. Did she really see her drawings come to life? After watching I have a much respect for Beatrix Potter not only for her beloved tales but for her preservation of the land.

      This is a wonderful movie, I loved it from start to finish. It made for some wonderful family time with my mother and my daughter. Renee Zellweger is as usual just incredible, as is Ewan McGregor great chemistry. I highly recommended it to anyone who enjoys top notch entertainment.
