Movie Monday: Miss Potter

Since I was visiting the Lake District, I thought I should watch a movie set partly in the beautiful scenery and inspired by one of it’s most famous residents . Miss Potter sees Renee Zellweger (Bridget Jones) transformed into children’s author Beatrix Potter and tells the story of books being published and how her life changed as a result. There are flashbacks to the her childhood and the inspiration behind some of her most loved characters. It’s a charming film and really shows off some of the best British countryside. Beatrix Potter was a woman of many talents and this film highlights her beautiful illustrations. The story is a little simplistic, but enjoyable nonetheless.
