A while back Amazon had a DVD blowout so Todd picked 2 DVD's and I picked 2 DVD's, last night we had nothing planned so I picked one of the movies that I chose to watch last night, Miss Potter. I am not a huge fan of Renee Zellweger but I do like her choice in movies that she does appear in.
Plot (Courtesy of IMDB): Thirty years old and single, Beatrix Potter lives in London with her social-climbing parents, who are exasperated that she has turned down any number of eligible young men. Her only real friends are the animals which since childhood she has lovingly drawn and made up stories about. She finally succeeds in selling a book of the stories, and it becomes Norman Warne's first project. He quickly falls in love with both the book and Beatrix and together they carefully arrange publication. This proves the first of many successes, offering her the possibility of escaping from both her parents' way of life and London.
I love period movies and really enjoyed this one. I really didn't know much about Beatrix Potters life and this movie gave a little glimpse of it.
