A Great Movie!
We just finished watching Miss Potter, the true story of Beatrix Potter (played by Renee Zellweger). She is the author and illustrator of the best-selling children's books of all time. Her beloved creations were Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddleduck, etc. I thought it would be boring for some reason but it was totally captivating and heart wrenching and beautiful. The movie begins with Beatrix as a young girl talking to her little friends she has drawn . I just erased many sentences about the movie (because Damien told me I was giving away too much of the story) - just get it. It is enchanting.
