Still shot from the movie: Miss Potter.

Miss Potter

The Tale of Peter Rabbit may be a familiar storybook now, but getting it printed was no easy feat. Miss Potter follows the challenges and heartaches faced by Beatrix Potter (Ren?e Zellweger ) as she tries to get her manuscript published in the male-dominated business world of Victorian England. Animation of her whimsical drawings and a budding romance make this dramatized biography almost as picture perfect as the work this author/artist is famous for. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What do you learn about Victorian England from the depictions found in Miss Potter? How do you feel about that era’s view of the position of women and the well-entrenched class system that discouraged people from marrying others who were not of a similar financial circumstance?

Beatrix Potter left her real estate assets to the public, which are now administered by the National Trust in the UK.
