    Sinossi:

    Beatrix Potter has delighted generations of children with her books. But she kept her own private life locked carefully away. Oscar-winning star Renee Zellweger is now bringing her secret story to the screen in "Miss Potter," the first film directed by Chris Noonan since his charming 1995 movie, Babe. It is set in the high summer days of late Victorian and Edwardian England, during which Beatrix develops her natural skills as artist and story-teller. When she finally publishes her debut book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, she becomes a writing celebrity. It also leads to courtship and her first love with publisher Norman Warne, played by Ewan McGregor. Their relationship and his marriage proposal in July, 1905, were to change Beatrix's life for ever.
    It was a love which she could not announce - or even talk about. In high-society London, her parents had insisted she keep it from friends and neighbours. They considered her proposed wedding a mismatch. Warne, they said, was from ‘trade' and demanded that she carefully reconsider their life together. Beatrix allowed herself to be persuaded to leave her fiancé and London. It was supposed to be a time for reflection and calm. But, instead, she faced tragedy and loneliness and returned, with a different outlook. She became a woman of strong views and independence. She also built up a farming dynasty in the Lake District - a dynasty over which she took charge long after her writing career virtually ended in 1913. It established her as a woman ahead of her time. Despite becoming the world's most successful children's writer and a wealthy landowner and prize-winning farmer, she never forgot her first love.

    Commento critico (a cura di MARTA SBRANA, Canada)

    Beatrix Potter illustrated her own books and that what you expect when you set yourself to watch “Miss Potter”. It’s an enchanted country side that unfold before your eyes, in a slow pace, a very Victorian atmosphere. Renee Zellweger, is perfect in the role of Beatrix Potter, her by now impeccable, charming British accent, her well know slightly blush and the unique way she curls her lips. In this film, once more, she team up with fellow British actor Ewan McGregor (Norman Warne). The story, very simple and without to many pretensions, is well wrap up by director Chris Noonan who shows it with a delicate touch, just like Miss Potter’s paint brushes. A very cute note is Miss Potter’s drawings that come to life to explain the audience her moods, what is happening in her life. As in Miss Potter real life, the drawings as used to say what

    can’t or couldn’t be said with words. Zellweger is able to portrait this unusual woman for her time; she was born in the second half of the 19th century and she lived through the first half of the 20th so she was a Victorian woman but she was strong, she wanted to be independent but most of all she was determined to live life to her own term. Unfortunately this performance is not enough to keep the viewers interested in this fairy tale that want to be for grown up trying to touch important social topics with a gentle touch. Anyway a good excuse to go get that book about Peter Rabbit that you haven’t read in your younger years.
