Whilst delighting generations of children with her books, Beatrix Potter kept her own story locked carefully away. Miss Potter is the enchanting love story inspired by Beatrix Potter's life and love affair with her publisher Norman Warne.
What a gem this film turned out to be - not what I was expecting at all. Set in Victorian England, it traces the life of Beatrix Potter, author of the famous 'bunny books'. She turns out to be quite a determined character and ahead of her time in terms of what women were 'allowed' to do. There is a strong love story running throughout between Beatrix and her publisher. Renee and Ewan really make these roles come alive and there is an enjoyable chemistry between them.
Was not expecting such a memorable film, it was superb and we enjoyed it very much. A good story when women were not expected to take control of their affairs, a real eye opener to the life of Beatrix Potter.
