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”. However, Beatrix’s father Rupert Potter proposes that his daughter spend the summer with his wife and him in their country house in Lake District, and if she is still interested in Norman after the summertime, he would bless their marriage. When Miss Potter stops receiving letters from Norman, she is disappointed. Then one day she receives a letter from Millie explaining what had happened to Norman.
Plot: The story of Beatrix Potter, the author of the beloved and best-selling children’s book, ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’, and her struggle for love, happiness and success.

Texan Zellweger does Beatrix Potter and English literature proud. Grand and exciting movie!
This is a fine movie. It has exquisite beauty, love, aspiration and dreams— and meticulous historical vibes. It is very true to the real story of Beatrix Potter. It is also a solidly interesting and entertaining movie as well. Far from being only a mere confection and therefore meaningless, ‘Miss Potter’ is meaty and solid.
In addition to being a great dramatic movie and true to life, it also possesses charm and grace. The very selective animation of the watercolour characters she drew— and animated only for Miss Potter’s eyes, mind!— are sweet, and totally in line with the original paintings she made 100 years ago. It is truly as if the characters come alive for her, and we get to share her passion, intimacy, and love for them, rather than the audience merely seeing a ‘cartoon’ of some kind. A welcome and pure delight!
The movie, in being faithful to the real Miss Potter’s life, reflected her actual world. Note that she had a chaperon at all times, even when in her own garden, or shopping. Social mores and what was proper or not occupied her mother, who herself was only a generation away from being one of those odious and lowly creatures she so despised— ‘a tradesman’. Heavens!
Anyway— given the life and times of Beatrix Potter, a movie about her will have certain degree of that as well— a certain gentility. Note also that her children’s books were also the very soul of discretion and refinement. She painted watercolor bunnies, for goodness’ sake. I found the life she did lead, and which was amply depicted in this movie, to be as dramatic as any. Consider what she endured, and what she went through. As well as what she didn’t go through. She was healthy, and rich, so we won’t see a lot of struggling with survival. She was kind and refined, so we won’t see a lot of violence and judgement and hatred, etc.—- those things were simply not in her.
She was, nonetheless, truly inspirational. She was bold, and a free thinker who displayed a lot of courage. She wasn’t a prostitute or a criminal or a resistance fighter or a herion addict or any ‘dramatic’ thing like that. Maybe she didn’t have to agonize over each piece of literature she produced, but the process of creativity and perseverance she did go through was inspiring to me.
Renee Zellweger did a remarkable job. And just think— she comes from Texas! The fact that a Texan pulled off a spot-on portrayal of a great English artist seems to have bent the noses of a tiny few English folks— maybe they are jealous, and stuck in some old and fetid dream of a long gone Empire? Dunno. But I loved Zellweger in this, and I think you will too. She masterfully and expertly did Beatrix Potter, and the English society of the turn of the last century, proud.
Very sweet – nicely done
The character of Miss Beactrix Potter is very well portrayed in this movie, with a very good supporting cast. Leaving aside the small artistic licence (and you need not know what this is) Renee Zellwiger seemed at first an unlikely choice for the title role, but she carried the part of talented spinster very well. I notice’from the credits that Ms Zellwiger had a voice coach – if I have any criticism of her it would be the slightly forced English accent, and maybe I could put this down to the upbringing of her rather starchy parents (played by Barbara Flynn and Bill Patterson). Etiquette being all the range, the 36-year-old Beatrix was constantly accompanied by a chaperon, which situation lent itself to moments of comedy.
The Warne brothers were all well cast. Star of the show was Norman Warne, (Ewan McGregor) who was thrust at Miss Potter as the other brothers did not want to deal with such a mere trifle as a children’s book. The other two made a brief appearance, and seemed far more typical of the businessmen they were to represent. I was very nearly moved to tears when Norman Warne died – he and Beatrix had secretly become engaged, and the wrench was all so real. Take a hankie just in case.
I would recommend this movie to everyone who’s a fan or merely an interested reader of Peter Rabbit et al. You will no doubt fall in love with the scenery too – and by all means use this as an excuse to visit the Lake District, see High Top, and of course the lakes themselves. This is a film for all ages.
