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. »
