Saw a delightful movie the other day that I’m happy to recommend for the entire family–“Miss Potter,” based, of course, on the life of Beatrix Potter, author of Peter Rabbit and many other stories you probably loved as a child. You can watch the movie trailer here.
Beatrix was unconventional in her day, but charming and loyal and adamant about her little book. I’m no artist, but I was moved by her beautiful art and the charming life she led–which was not without tragedy, of course. (I don’t know how much of the movie is actually biographical and how much conflict was inserted for story’s sake, but it is a satisfying film.)
And the farm–who wouldn’t be inspired writing in a place like that! Although I don’t know how she had much time for her fancifully realistic art while she was overseeing a working farm.
Lovely movie. Rent it today and enjoy!
