MISS POTTER (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Miss Potter—wonderful, wonderful film—becomes an instant classic. Renee Zellweger becomes Ms. Potter. Her portrayal of this character is impeccable. The movie perfectly times its scenes and relies on a sweet transitioning between city and country life. It plays through the family tensions between Ms. Potter’s mother, her father, and herself beautifully. It’s an ode to women who find their way in life and do not lose their souls in the process. Ewan McGregor and Emily Watson are such perfect choices for Zellweger’s supporting cast members. Well worth its watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

  Yes. This is one of those rare films when a film critic wants to lean back and enjoy the movie rather than professionally critique the movie. It’s a well-written piece of entertainment that does just what a movie is supposed to do—entertain.
