Just a quickie.....I wanted to let you know that my husband and I watched the movie 'Miss Potter' yesterday, and REALLY enjoyed it!!
Even if we weren't interested in the Lakes District, we would have really liked the movie....thought the acting by Ms Zellweger was quite good. Actually, we thought all the acting was very good. The animation was SO GREAT!!! I didn't expect that at all! We enjoy period movies, so that added to our enjoyment.
All of the scenery of the Lakes District was fantastic!!
It showed what a pivotal role Miss Potter had in preserving the scenery, small farms, and rural way of life in the Lakes District. Miss Potter was a remarkable woman....quite the women's liberationist! To have that independent spirit and determination, especially at that time....Wow!
Must get back to work, but just wanted to thank you for telling us about this movie. We are sending a set of Beatrix Potter books to one of our nieces for Christmas this year, so we are going to send her parents this DVD as a nice companion to the books. Also, my Sister is a retired elementary schoolteacher who LOVES the illustrations of Beatrix Potter. We just ordered a copy of the movie for her also.
Thanks again for telling us about this movie,
