Plot Summary

Beatrix Potter was a literary phenomenon of the early 20th Century. At a time when most young women of her class aimed only to make a good marriage, Beatrix became an iconic figure, swimming quietly, but with great fortitude, against the tide. She created a series of books and characters that are as beloved today as they were a hundred years ago, and since their publication they have never been out of print. She was also a distinguished painter and – had she been a man – her botanical drawings would have been snapped up by the Royal Horticultural Society at Kew Gardens. In addition, by the time she died in 1943, Beatrix Potter had purchased vast swathes of the Lake District that she left to the then fledgling British conservation trust, the National Trust. That so much of this glorious countryside that inspired her, remains as it was in Beatrix Potter’s day for others to enjoy, is her bequest to the nation. This is her story…

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Miss Potter, right to the end, is the definition of a nice movie, and that makes it a genuine oddball in a universe of increasingly distressed and uncivilized pop culture. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: Feels more lightweight than it should and simultaneously not magical enough. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: I found it slight but enchanting, which is not the same thing as slightly enchanting. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Miss Potter is as seamless, comfortable and tidy as a Peter Rabbit story, all scones and biscuits, quietly punctuated by tolerable naughtiness. – Michael Booth, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

This touched my heart.

Tears flowed freely down my cheeks all through this film. Most were tears of happiness, but also, tears of sadness: sadness for what we have lost as we have become a more enlightened society; sadness for so many stupid parents who did their best to ruin their children's expression; sadness for lost loves and for friendships so sweet they hurt. I think I have never seen so delightful a film. If you have ever wished for something better in your life, or in the world around you, then this is a must see film! Absolutely wonderful in every category!

Great movie and great acting

This is one of the best movies I have seen. It is a fantastic story build around the life of Beatrice Potter and her life and love. Drew plays the part to perfection and the rest of the cast is fantastic. I loved the way the characters in her books came to life. The storyline between Beatrice and her parents progressed nicely and the end result was a charming movie that I have watched at least 10 times. It is a classic that will stand the test of time.

Miss Potter

A wonderfully, charming story of one of my most favorite writers! A great tribute to Miss Potter by Miss Zellweiger [sp?]. Excellently done!
