Highly recommended. Excellent story. and fantastic acting of Renee Zwellweger as well as all the other actors, the parents, Ewan Macgregor, Emily Watson etc. beautiful cinematography too and great costume design. Never knew about her story if not for this movie.
DVD sent in unwatchable condition. could you please add replacement to my queue.
The combination of a fascimating character and a sensitive actress make this tale come alive in obvious and subltle ways. Positivity and ambition are the heroes of the story. The animations mirror the thoughts and feelings showing how healty minds deal with adversity and disappointment. Enjoy!
Charming story with a wonderful blend of humour, sorrow and joy. Beatrix Potter's art comes to life!
I thought this was a good movie, well acted, although I thought the idea of the cartoons coming to life unnecessary. Also, Renee Zellweger's expression seemed sour throughout much of the movie, to the extent that it became annoying by the end of it.l
absoltuely loved this - i thought Renee Zellweger portrayed a very complex personality very tastefully - loved the drawings and the landscape
Great movie. Its amazing what someone can achieve with their own determination!
Wonderful. I enjoyed every minute of it.
A delightful wholesome movie. Loved it!
This was an excelent movie, even my 'Westerns only'' husband had a tear in his eye.
Enjoyable film, although I thought the ending was a bit abrupt. The concept of animating her characters (e.g. Peter Rabbit et al) was rather cute and could have been expanded. Similar to some other viewers, I was disappointed that there were no subtitiles, especially seeing that this is a film that revolves around conversations.
Note that this is essentially an adult film, yet it is rated G.
That really says something; which is that, this film has a wonderful story, well written
I did enjoyed watching DVD of Miss Potter, it was funny and homour for kids and adult alike.
I was quite dissappointed it did not have English Sub-Title as I have an Hearing Impairment I could not understand/hear clearly what they were saying.
So If you can send me one with Sub-Tile I will definetly rent it out again.
simply delightful!. good performance from Renee wellzeger.
Sad yet ultimately uplifting story!
Was a great movie, funny, romantic and sad in some scenes but defiantly a winner!
Delightful period piece with the affluent Miss Potter's spinster life taking a turn not really accepted at the time for ladies whose only ambition should be to marry. Scenery of the lakes district is beautiful. Renee is surprisingly good as an English rose. Ewan McGregor is enchanting.
Miss Potter- an exquisite movie! Renee Z does an excellent job as Beatrix Well worth watching !
Absolutely gorgeous my girls loved it. Thank you.
Great movie about a popular childrens book, It brings back alot of childhood memories.
Just loved this movie! Would watch it again. Scenery was breathtaking.
Renee as usual is a brillant actress who plays her characters so convincingly that you believe she is the person. Ewan is a gorgeous man who plays his character in a very sensitive way. Renee and Ewan just have this chemistry on screen. I just loved this movie over all and the emotion it stirred. Who could not love Beatrix Potter stories and her life loving animals.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
Renee does an EXCELLENT accent and Ewan always delivers.
It is quite enchanting while watching the story to remind yourself that is supposedly a true story. Very inspiring.
Ok. Interesting to find out who she was as I had the books as a child. Rene is always a bit stiff in these roles - in fact all roles. There are many British actors who would have done a much better job.
A beautifully portrayed film of a woman who was ahead of her era in the struggle for independence and free-thinking, she also had share of tragedy.
I loved it! Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor were fantastically cast and had a real on screen presence. Plus the scenery of the English countryside and the charm of the whole movie made it a very enjoyable experience.
Very enjoyable movie, scenery was beautiful.
What a beautiful magical movie about Beatrix Potter and her fairytales which still live in the hearts of millions of children today. Her imagination never faltered and her believable charecters who lived in her mind since childhood. Lovely English scenery, a story well told.
Just a story. The story of love was predictable and the perception of a struggle with her parents false.
aAosutely loved it .A good movie for the whole family.
An enjoyable film for any Potter fan. One thing that jarred was that Ewan's character disappears from screen, and we are only later given an excuse why. A little foreshadowing wouldn't go astray.
Thoroughly entertaining film about the celebrated children's books author. The film is gorgeously shot and well acted. The animations on paper of Beatrix's characters such as Peter Rabbit, Gemima Puddleduck and others, are seemless and add to the beauty of the story. Somewhat predictable and perhaps a little quick? Definitely worth a watch, though, for young and old. It shows what a wonderful human being Beatrix Potter was, as well as being a celebrated author.
I didn't think I'd like it and so I'm surprised to say I loved it.
What a great movie. Thoroughly enjoyed it and could and will watch it over and over again
What a gorgeous movie. Hubby and I both enjoyed this one equally. Renee was perfect for this role.
Immensely enjoyable if you like true stories. Beautifully shot scenically and truly capturing the
feel of the era it was set in. I fell in love with the
characters of Beatrix Potters' stories through the
wonderful animations portrayed. Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor couldn't have done a better job.
Renee is definitely one of the finest actresses of our time.
Ok expected it to be much better. but still a nice story
I LOVED this movie.Although its a G rating I cant see too many young girls(or boys) being interested ,but it is a truly lovely,innocent film which is rare these days.The Lake District is one of my fave places on earth and it was lovely to see it in this film.A must watch if you are after a light hearted ,feel good movie.The drawings and the way they come to life is delightful.Lovely!!
Beautifully filmed and acted. A gentle, engaging story of determination in the face of adversity.
Thought this might be a slightly boring movie but was very pleasantly surprised - even my husband quite enjoyed it! I managed to overlook Renee Zellweger's annoying expressions and mannerisms to be entertained by a delightfully genteel (no swearing, nudity, sex or violence!) re-enactment of the life of Beatrix Potter. I was previously under the impression that she was a mild-mannered spinster but discovered that wasn't the case at all. A wonderful supporting cast - I didn't even recognise Ewan McGregor as the charming and supportive suitor. Highly recommended.
Lovely movie, great characters.
Loved it so much I watched it 5 times. Its a period drama with a beautiful love story. Renee Zellweger and Ewan Mcgreggor were outstanding in this fillm. I was swept away with the emotion of this movie.
Really enjoyable, touching true story with characters you can love and hate - and that translates to being involved and entertained.
An outstanding movie in every sense of the word.
Quite often you'll see a movie which you want to see a second time but then when you do you think you must have had rocks in your head to have done so. Miss Potter is not one of those movies, it really is just a wonderful movie and I strongly recommend it
Lovely film, visually gorgeous both for its scenery and the delightful animations of Beatrix' well-loved characters who flit through the film.
4 Stars. This movie is really one for all the girls - it is a beautiful romantic movie plus one of a lady standing her ground in a male orientated world - well worth the watch - I could also see this one again.
Great movie for all the family. Renee was wonderful as Miss Potter.
Miss Potter - what a story!!!! Made me cry and laugh and it was wonderful. I would even recommend this to families to show kids what she did years ago. I think most of us don't realise that it was years ago that this all happened.
What a fabulous movie ! It finished and I hard I then sat down and watched it over again ... it's one of those that you could watch over and over. Informative in relation to Beatrix Potter as I didn't know that was her life story ... sad, interesting, historic, lively and joyous ... her courage, strength and perseverence during this time is amazing and a true testament to inner knowledge of one self and worth. Thanks
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Kept interest throughout taking you on a journey of all the highs and lows of Miss Potters life.
A wonderful movie with that is a definite "must see" if you ever read the Beatrix Potter books as a child. It is also the most romantic love story set in truly a truly picturesque part of England. Just Loved this movie.
Fabulous Lake District scenery and a engaging story. Beatrix Potter an exceptional person for her time as well as an enduring story teller. Good story, well told by all the actors and director. The animated graphics were a special touch that enhanced as well.
What a delightful movie - just like Renee Zellweger's voice! Enjoyed watching it.
Gorgeous. Lake District still has the Pride and Prejudice feel. Refreshing to have kids watch a wholesome movie.
We grew up with Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck!! Great family viewing. Delicately handled and well presented. We enjoyed it very much.
Loved Miss Potter. Renee Zellweger is fantastic as Beatrix. The scenery was so gorgeous I want to visit. A sweet love story that makes you sad - it has everything. As for the little drawings so very cute and lifelike. A truly delightful movie.
LOVED it. What an amazing movie and great cinematography.
i thought this a delightful and suprising movie. very sweet drama, tears and joy, recommended
Such a beautiful story that is so brilliantly acted by Renee Zellweger that you forget it's Renee Zellweger on the screen. Not often an actor can so beautifully embrace the character that i only see the person they are protraying and not th actor. Such a beautiful script that give a wonderful glimps into the life of Beatrx Potter, an amazing woman.
Brilliant and heart warming. The scenery is not to be missed - both in the movie and actually going there.
I enjoyed it, and i dont tend to enjoy romances anymore.
I never got this movie. Maybe it was because I was distracted by Renee Z's appalling acting or her annoying British accent. She also needs some make up! Terrible movie
A lovely feel good movie. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, even though I don't really like Renee.
one of the most appallingly bland, dire, uninspired and uninspiring movies i have ever had the misfortune to witness - and pay for. do not rent this movie unless you are a child or a dimwit. the legacy of ms potter has been done a great disservice.
I enjoyed it but it is not for everyone
Okay but DVD died 59mins and 50secs into the movie so didn't see the ending
loved this movie, I din't know some things about miss potter. Ideal for all the family to watch together.
Even my hubby enjoyed it - so don't think of it as a girlie flick.
Excellent - My wife loves this movie
A surprisingly lovely film. Given the subject matter it had the potential to become a bit twee but it didn't.
Brilliant. Renee is winderful. Refreshing to watch a fast paced period film for a change!
this was such a nice movie,recommended for anyone with a love of Beatrix Potter,
Jane Austen style movie. Renee is just gorgeous as the idiosyncratic Miss Potter. The love story between her and Mr Warne (Ewan McGregor - resplendant with the most ridiculous moustache!) is heartbreaking.
Sigh..what a nice movie...lovely scenery and artistry....English filmmaker really are convinced that an American actor/ess is necessary for a film's success it appears...
Sweet movie but also a little sad
bad acting, casting and script
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie which chronicled the life and time of a woman who was way before her time. Her independence and determination are to be admired.
I absolutely LOVED it. I found the story interesting, I didn't know how it would pan out, and I found Renee Zellwegger to be incredible and believable as Beatrix Potter.
Wow, what a nice, feel-good movie with no swearing, shooting, drugs and so on!!!
A most moving and wonderful portrait of a remarkable woman done with love and dedication. Scenes of her childhood are seamlessly interwoven with those of her at work drawing and communing with her animal characters, which delightfully come alive at odd moments. A movie made for adults but quite suitable for children, with some stunning shots of the Lake District and of Yew Tree Farm, which the successful author eventually bought, and with a soundtrack of music composed by Nigel Westlake creating just the right atmosphere.
This is a lovely story...interesting to learn more about Beatrix Potter. I was very impressed with it in every way. Great chemistry with all actors. Renee Zellweger was perfect...as was Ewan McGregor. Very, very enjoyable
loved it. It was great to watch the story behind one of my fav childrens books.
Put simply, this is a lovely movie. The scenery is beautiful, the story is nice and the characters are strong.
I relly liked this film. She was a really strong woman who challenged the social values of the time. Spectacular cinematography of the Lakes District and a touching love story.
If only there were more movies like this one. Entertaining; informative; A1 acting. Even my partner who thought he would not get beyond five minutes was enthralled.
great movie for the whole family.
Loved this movie, I had no idea of this Authors real life story and found it very interesting. I have recommended it to all my family and friends.
Interesting, my daughter liked it a lot.
This movie was gorgeous. Renee played the character so well. Cried a lot in this one!
Don't know, didn't love it.
Such a delightful movie and Rene Zel..... did a super job of portraying Miss Potter - I loved every minute.
I enjoyed the movie very much it is part of Biatrix Potter's life and her journey to becoming one of the best writers of the that time a true to life.
cute movie and really enjoyed it. Was surprised actually.
This is a good feel good movie thats worth watching...
Loved this movie. Rene's acting has gone a long way since Miss Betty. She is quite a charmer.
Absolutely charming, loved every minute of it. Well acted & good direction.
Absolutely perfect. The special features were worth watching also.
Beautiful movie. The country side where a lot of the movie was shot was absolutely incredible. Renee Zellwegger played Miss Potter wonderfully. Love Ewan McGregor as her beau.
Another brilliant performance by Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor.
I have always been interested in Beatrix Potter and visited Hill Top farm as a child. Her life is fascinating, her drive to succeed in a time when this wasn't socially acceptable is commendable.
I was concerned that there might be too much twee animation, but the balance is just right.
The scenes in the Lake District are great and it is wonderful to know that due to this woman's efforts to produce child sized books in colour, she was able to gain the funds to save much of the Lake District's beauty.
This is a costume drama, but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed the fight by one woman to build a career in children's literature.
Loved it totally - fantastic cast,great story, fantastic inspiration, brought back many fond memories of Lakes District
I loved this movie. It was hard for women back in those days. It showed this very well. She was a great lady and to achieve what she did was nothing short of a miricle.
loved it - well worth the look. Renee was perfectly cast.
A very warm and gentle movie. It was a delight to watch.
An absolute must for all homes... children through to oldies will gain a great deal from this delightfully portrayed story. All children should start their lives with these books. Loved it!
Excellent movie-I really enjoyed it - lovely and sweet without being slushy
I loved this movie! Simple, refreshing and good for the soul! But not just fairy floss - there was grief and sorrow and real depth as well. Well worth seeing.
This movie is most enjoyable. My Mum knew Miss Potter so I had to watch it. I am glad I did.
Beautiful movie with absolutely stunning scenery.
Excellent movie, its really worth a "look"
I saw this one at the movies and it was certainly worth a second watch on DVD. A beautiful story, sensitively told complete with gorgeous Lake District scenery and two terrific actors - what more could you ask for!
love the movie its a must see
A very Excellent movie with lots of sweet touching moments , drama , love and determination by a woman being brought up in a society of Toffs.
was very enjoyable would recommend it
Beautiful locations. A movie my wife and I liked very much once we got over Renee' Zellweger's familiar twitches and tics. Moving but not overly sentimental.
Recommended for family viewing.
In spite of my appreciation of the legacy that Beatrix Potter has left in her art work and stories, I couldn't watch much of this movie because of Renee Zellweigger's incessant Cheshire cat type smile. It absolutely got on my nerves, and took away the credibility of the story, because I dont believe that Beatrix Potter ever went around grinning like that.
If you like period drams such a Pride & Prejudice or Emma, then this will please you as well. Really enjoyed the characters and story. Beautiful film.
Slow to start but picked up after 20 mins or so. Renee's smile needs to worked on - it looks like a chicken puckering up for a poo!
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Scenery is brilliant.
Totally fantastic if you enjoyed the adventures of peter rabbit and further all the potter family's you have to watch this. Love renae zellwigger plays the best part. FANTASTIC I thought it would be a chick flick but even the fella enjoyed it alittle.
Some years ago I had the job of illustrating a book 'in the style of' Beatrix Potter and got to know a little bit about her as a result of my research. So, I was interested to see what Renee Zelwegger did with the role. As always, she nails the accent, but I couldn't help feeling she was doing a 'Bridget Jones in Victorian costume' at times. Although it was an interesting script, nothing was said of the fact that some of Potter's stories have a slightly sadistic tone, which reflect not only the attitudes of the era in which she lived (and possibly still persist?) but quite possibly her own: Tabitha Twitchet shuts the kittens in a cupboard for being naughty: a hunter shoots off the tail and whiskers of 'the bad rabbit': Mr Bunny beats Benjamin with a 'switch' ... all not only in the text but also illustrated.
I think it might have made the character more believable if this could have been touched on in some way. Difficult to do in 2 hours, but possible.
The inclusion of some lovely animation, composited very cleverly into the live action, was a very nice touch...but for someone who loves animation as I do, I felt it was a shame there wasn't more. That aside, the performances were all good and it was a touching love story, with some beautiful locations, topped off with some very informative Extras.
l really did enjoy this movie. It was intertesing to see what sort of life Miss Potter had and what amazing things she managed to achieve especially in that era.
Would recommend this movie
Quite outstanding in all respects - story, casting, acting, cinematography, costumes, settings. Interestings characters too!.
Wonderful story, if you can put up with Renee Z. Watching her made me run for the jar of moisturiser.
Lovely girly pic. Not one for the boys.
This was a beautiful movie and portrayed 'Miss Potter' and her era just as I have imagined them. The animations were very appropriate, and though there were some sad moments, this movie was well worth watching.
i really enjoyed this movie as a fan of beatrice potter it was good to see how it all came bout.
Great scenery excellant acting
a lovely little movie, I knew nothing about her personal story until this movie. It was sad but had a good ending. She was a wonderful person as well as a great story writer. Thank god someone had faith to print her stories or we never would know them.
Again Renee does a great job making Beatrix her own, great support cast, loved the scenery and the animation was special too
Nice movie- good story line and some beautiful scenery.
I loved this movie. I think I am really becoming a Ewan McGregor fan. He's so likeable. The movie was lovely, and the scenery of the Lake District is beautiful countryside. Someone who knows a lot more about B. Potter than I do said the story is not very accurate, but since I don't know the true story, I thought this one very enjoyable, though obviously sad in places. Interesting fact that The B. Potter books are the best selling children's stores of al time too! Go Peter Rabbit!!!
Very interesting. Learnt something new about Beatrix Potter.
I found this movie slow moving yet there is enough to keep you interested. may as a child we all have read miss potters' books.
What a lovely movie. A nice refreshing change and the scenery is beautiful. I loved Renee in this movie.
Clean warm delightful movie, contained a bit of padding re the storyline. Artwork impressive, recommended (chick flick) for a pleasant nights viewing.Rene never lets you down.
A delight! I found I had a smile on my face for the most part. Landscapes gave it an extra dimension, & some great acting from supporting cast.
Really enjoyed this movie. The quirky nature of Miss Potter along with the story of her spinsterhood and the tragedy of her life was very touching. Surprisingly my husband enjoyed it as well.
Great movie - my hubby thought he'd hate it and didn't want to watch it and even he enjoyed it!
About as emotionally engaging as a Bunnikins cup and saucer set.
Renee's acting is superb as ever. Movie is very enjoyable.
A heart warming movie for the whole family.
It cannot be said that Renee Zellweger does a mean English accent. This movie finished short of telling a really compelling story. Visual the film is a delight and Ewan McGregor does his part as the leading man again. Even nice to hear him sing again.
A wonderful story and all the more powerful as it is true
I LOVED this movie. Could watch it again. Renee is excellent in the role.
Whilst Miss Potter may have had an unhappy childhood/adolesence/early adulthood, she certainly made up for it with her work and made millions of children very happy indeed.
Renee Zellweger was wonderful in this delightful movie, very enjoyable.
Thank you for Miss Potter, As I am deaf I rely on text to view the films and am not able to enjoy them without. I think it would have been great if i could have heard it!
Good movie. Enjoyed it. Worth watching.
A really warm, innocent movie that touches your childish self and reminds you of young love. Loved it!!
I enjoyed this film, its a good one to watch home alone
A nice, easy to watch movie that tells an inspiring story. Likeable characters and beautiful back-drops add to the entertainment.
Started off slowly, but by the end I was enjoying it, even though Renee keeps channelling Bridget Jones!
This is such a wonderful movie!!! Excellant casting, wonderful setting, just a classic with a little bit of everything. The sort of movie you will watch over and over again and it offers so much about the life of Miss Potter!!! Enjoy!!
What a great movie this is - its a must to watch!
Very predictable but a lovely "girly" film.
I didn't like it that much - I found it slow and the characters unbelievable. Thought the script good but poorly cast. The chemistry between Potter and her publisher was not quite right. Disappointing
I loved this movie. The scenery from the Lake district is stunning.
