Miss Potter Film

Centred around the relationship between Beatrix Potter and Norman Warne, which developed while they worked together on the publication of the first few Peter Rabbit books and ended tragically in his early death, this Hollywood film stars Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor.

Directed by Chris Noonan (Babe), it took an incredible fourteen years to get from script to screen. It tells the fascinating tale of an incredible woman who created one of the world’s most enduring characters and became an author and artist of independent means in Victorian England.
