Miss Potter-A Review

Last weekend I watched the movie 'Miss Potter' starring Renee Zellweger and Ewen McGregor. I highly recommend it and enjoyed it enormously so much so that I intend to buy the DVD for my own movie library.

It is refreshing in that there are no hidden skeletons and also no besmirching of Beatrix Potter character. Instead it is a lyrical journey of this womans remarkable life and her determination to have her books published. This was at a time when women of means did not work but Beatrix was no ordinary woman.

I wont spoil the film for those who have not seen it, suffice to say that it is children friendly and a great treat for those looking for some magic in their lives.
