Miss Potter and friends

I love the movie, I have been to the Lake District, it is enchanting. I love Miss Potter and how she devoted her life to her furry friends and her beloved husband. I love how Rene Z plays the character of Miss Potter and how she can be both Miss Potter and Miss Jones and be totally believable in both roles, it shows how authentic she can be. The rest of the actors were brilliant especially her snobby mother and weak father who had no backbone. I love this movie.

It is not that lighthearted 2018 Peter Rabbit

Heavy on issues, but nice on acting and effects and lovely English backdrops. Not to be confused with Harry Potter even if it looks like the same classic English settings. A shame this movie drowned in the many family friendly blockbusters of 2006.

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much consumerism
