    Miss Potter (2006)

    Director: Chris Noonan
    Written By: Richard Maltby Jr.
    Lead Actors: Renee Zellweger, Ewan McGregor and Emily Watson
    Genre: Biography, Romance

              The life of Miss Beatrix Potter spends her childhood years and grown to be an extraordinary woman in London. At the age of 32, she's unmarried and living in grandeur lifestyle under the roof of her parents trying to be in the upper class society. As a young child, she created a world with her animal friends, bringing into life drawn with stories to tell. She was so determined to be single, that made her turned down all her suitors. The milestone of her life changed into blossoms as she published her first story book, assisted by Mr. Noman Warne, the first time publisher. Eventually, the two souls being together fell in love along the process of printing and publishing the manuscript. 


              The film depicts the life story of Beatrix Potter as portrayed by Renee Zellweger, a romance that will capture your attention. Along the success of her published children books.

              Renee Zellweger had acted so superb in carrying herself with manner of grace. The act so refine during the old-fashioned days in London. On the other hand, Ewan Mcgregor (Norman Warne) showed his craft of being so gentle to assist for the publication of the Beatrix's manuscript.

              The flow clarity of the movie lines were so classic, that you can even feel the inner thoughts portrayed by the characters. You can even feel amazed that Beatrix gifted author to draw her animal friends, at the same time writing a story tale of her creations.


             Chris Noonan had directed a very entertaining film for the viewers to easily comprehend the scenes. It illustrated the flashback of Miss Potter's childhood years, to picture out how it all started to be a writer. The background was so appropriate to movie goers to travel along the beautiful sceneries terrain in country side of London.

              The highlight had laid into plot, when Beatrix invited Mr. Norman Warne and his sister that is annually held Christmas Party in their house.  The typical costumes had showcased the old ways of life during the year of 1910. In the middle of the party, Miss Potter and Mr. Warne had the opportunity to know each other. 

              The music background from a music box "Let me teach you how to dance" blended the love atmosphere between the two souls; Mr. Warne sang the lyrics as he takes Miss Potter to dance. The moment made you feel the love. It is the open window to have the marriage proposal. Renee Zellweger outshine the single moment dancing right after the party had ended, tears run through her eyes. 

              The story runs smooth as it plays nearly ending of the movie, when Mr. Warne got seriously ill. Eventually Beatrix didn't have the second thought of going back to the city and see Norman. The only thing that made me feel hanging, the film didn't show the last dying breath of Mr. Warne. It was cut short with bad news, but surprisingly Noolan's style of directing the film showed the stages of grief as effectively acted by Renee Zellweger.  

              At the ending of the film, it was really a promising character for the viewers to be inspired in a true to life story while dealing with the challenges. Personally speaking, Miss Potter is worth to watch with the family and friends. The life with determination to choose of what's best to take forward without regrets from the past.
