Storyline

In 1902, in London, the spinster Beatrix Potter lives with her bourgeois parents. Her snobbish mother, Helen Potter, had introduced several bachelors to Beatrix until she was twenty years old, but she had turned them all down. Beatrix Potter has been drawing animals and making up stories about them since she was a child, but her parents have never recognized her as an artist. One day, Miss Potter offers her stories to a print house, and a rookie publisher, Norman Warne, who is delighted with her tales, publishes her first children's book. This success leads Norman to publish two other books, and Miss Potter meanwhile becomes the best friend of his single sister Millie Warne. Soon Beatrix and Norman fall in love with each other, but Helen does not accept that her daughter would marry a "trader". However, Beatrix's father Rupert Potter proposes that his daughter spend the summer with his wife and him in their country house in Lake District, and if she is still interested in Norman after...

A perfect role for Renee!
6 December 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Renee is perfect in this role, sweet, touching, funny and amazing as usual. I have a feeling that a release just at the end of the year has something to do with the Oscar season...And I wouldn't be surprised to see Renee in the nominations. The drawing and special effects when she talks to her "friends" are funny and well done. Great supporting roles, especially Emily Watson and the chaperone part...Beautiful landscape. I really hope the movie will attract a big audience, even though, I'm not sure who the audience will be. Peter Rabbit and Co. are part of everybody's childhood and it brings back a lot of memories. I'm sure a lot of people will relate to the story. And to finish, the song at the end is beautifully sung by Katie Melua. I totally recommend this movie!
