Miss Potter


Whimsical drama based on the life of early 20th century children's author Beatrix Potter, creator of Peter Rabbit. As a young woman, Potter rails against her wealthy parents' wishes for her to marry and settle down. Instead, she continues to write about and draw the animals she has adored since childhood. Her early attempts to find a publisher for her children's stories are unsuccessful, but an offer from a small firm to print her books will turn her into a literary phenomenon - and lead to a meeting that will change her life.
