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".

Ewan McGregor was Renee Zellweger's first choice to star beside her as Miss Potter's romantic interest, Mr. Norman Warne. See more »
In the railway station scene filmed on the Bluebell Railway, the LNWR on the tank locomotive has been very visibly altered from LWSR. The N stuck over the W is a really bodged job for such a close up shot. See more »
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!
