Miss Pot­ter

Satur­day, 7two, 8.30pm, G (2006)

Western Times - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Un­like her books, Beatrix Pot­ter took for­ever to reach a happy end­ing, as Chris Noo­nan’s il­lus­tra­tion of the au­thor’s life por­trays. Renée Zell­weger (left) de­ploys her trade­mark fa­cial tics in a capri­cious por­trayal of the English creat or of Peter Rab­bit, whose far­fetched imag­i­na­tion tot­ters be­tween the lines of love­able and un­set­tling. Ewan McGre­gor plays love-in­ter­est Nor­man, who en­dears him­self to her by re­gard­ing her ideas with a sin­cer­ity that no one else of­fers. Syd­ney di­rec­tor Noo­nan’s story of a mis­un­der­stood au­thor floats awk­wardly be­tween a so­cial re­flec­tion of a de­mand­ing era and chil­dren’s fare. ★★★★
