Texas rose Renée Zell­weger is once again ef­fec­tive in the role of an English­woman, this time the beloved au­thor and il­lus­tra­tor Beatrix Pot­ter (1866-1943), cre­ator of The Tale of Peter Rab­bit. Aus­tralian di­rec­tor Chris Noonan ( Babe) uses an­i­ma­tion to show how Pot­ter imag­ined and in­ter­acted with her char­ac­ters. Her other world is cos­seted by the mores of the time and her pri­vate life is hardly smooth. Pot­ter is shown as an en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist and a smart busi­ness­woman, traits un­der­scored fol­low­ing her death when she left a swath of Eng­land’s beau­ti­ful Lakes Dis­trict to the Bri­tish peo­ple.
