Miss Potter

Rating = B

I learned some interesting things about Beatrix Potter in this movie, and I always enjoy learning more about the Victorian era in England when upper class women were supposed depend on a husband for everything.

I didn't enjoy Ranee Zellweger so much in this film. When I first saw her in a movie, in “The Whole Wide World,” her facial mannerisms seemed perfect for the role of a 1930s school teach. As the years have gone by, these mannerisms have become awfully repetitive and unoriginal. Emily Watson was also in “Miss Potter,” and I suspect she would have made a lot more of the Miss Potter role.
