I just watched the movie Miss Potter and have to say I found it completely charming. The movie is based on the true life story of Beatrix Potter, a children's book author and illustrator in Victorian England, who brought to the world many of the most beloved children's stories ever written.
Her most famous story would have to be The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
The movie is poignant, sweet and utterly inspiring to anyone who has ever hoped to pursue a career doing something they love. And perhaps even more important... Living the life they know they were meant to live, even if it doesn't fit into the plans others have made for them.
Renée Zellweger plays the role of Beatrix Potter perfectly with just the right amount of strength and vulnerability. After watching the movie I have to say I think Beatrix was the epitome of a Flirty Girl. Unafraid to follow her own inner voice, and gracious the entire way as she traveled her own unique path.
The movie made me laugh and cry. Just like real life.
