Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

I saw this ages ago when it first came out on DVD however I also noticed it was on the TV today and as I enjoyed it so much previously I decided to put it on whilst we were having our dinner. I was actually really looking forward to seeing it again but thought it wouldn't be my partners cup of tea. However, I am glad to say I think he enjoyed it aswell! The film is based on the life of the childrens author Beatrix Potter. This is a film only review. 

*Plot* 
The film begins by introducing us to a young Beatrix Potter, she has a passion for drawing and adores animals. We then see Beatrix when she is older, she is now thirty and still living with her parents. She gets on well with her father but her mother is growing increasingly concerned because Beatrix has turned down a number of potential suitors. 

Beatrix spends her spare time drawing animals and making up stories about them. She has few friends so sees this hobby as her escape. Eventually someone notices her stories and she gets them published, much to hers and her fathers joy however her mother will not acknowledge how successful her daughter has become. 

*Opinion* 
I enjoyed this film the first time I saw it and I enjoyed it just as much this time around. I was a big fan of Beatrix Potters books when I was a child so therefore felt it was my duty to see it! I really enjoyed the plot of the film as it was very interesting and kept my attention well. It is quite a laid back film, there isn't too much going on at any one time but the plot still is interesting and I enjoyed it. 

Renee Zellweger was fantastic as Beatrix and I felt that she really looked into Beatrix's life in order to understand her personality fully and therefore portray her as she would have been. The character of Beatrix was very loveable and I found myself backing her every move throughout the film, she seemed a very down to earth character and she had a lovely personality. 

One thing I must mention is the setting of the film which is primarily set in the Lake District. The scenery is breath taking and if any of you have ever visited there then you will probably really enjoy watching the film just for the views. 

The plot flowed well and the ending of the film was done very well, wrapping up all loose ends. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone looking for a film with lots going on but anyone interested in Beatrix will find it a lovely watch. It was perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. 

*Additional Information* 
The film was released in 2006. 
It was directed by Chris Noonan. 
It starred Renee Zellwegger, Ewan McGregor, Emily Watson and Barbara Flynn. 
It lasts 92 minutes and is rated a PG. 

*Summary* 
Perfect viewing for a lazy Sunday afternoon with all of the family.
