Overview

Academy-Award winning actress Renee Zellweger (COLD MOUNTAIN) stars as the best-selling children's author and illustrator Beatrix Potter in the biopic MISS POTTER. Set in Victorian England, the film follows Potter's life, from a little girl with a wild imagination and a fascination for woodland animals to an independent young woman in pursuit of a career in illustration and storytelling, despite the urging of her domineering mother to follow in her footsteps in high society. After struggling to find a publisher who would take her ideas and talent seriously, Miss Potter finally landed a chance with Frederick Warne & Company. While she worked diligently with her publisher--the youngest of the Warne brothers, Norman (Ewan McGregor)--on her debut book, THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT, the two fell in love and became secretly engaged. They continued to work together on the follow-up books, which would make her one of the most beloved and bestselling authors of all time.

Zellweger lights up the screen with her portrayal as Potter, revealing that the woman who hid behind the children's books led a fascinating and sometimes dramatic life. The film celebrates Potter's creativity and innovation, illustrating how she was a woman ahead of her time who--despite her high social standing--still took pleasure in the simple things in life. Zellweger and McGregor (MOULIN ROUGE) have tremendous on-screen chemistry, and Emily Watson (BREAKING THE WAVES), who plays Norman's sister Millie, contributes a fantastic supporting-role performance.
