Movie Review: Miss Potter (2006)

Hello, all of you!

This will be my first movie review of 2019! I decided that it would be the first movie I watched in 2019, and I was planning on it being a movie that I had never seen before, but my whole family started watching this one that we love, so here we are! This is a fabulous movie, but I'll let you read my review.

My guarantee: On ALL of my reviews there are NO spoilers unless I give you warning.

Miss Potter (2006):
Based on: A true story!
"There's something delicious about writing the first few words of a story, you never know where they will take you..."
Beatrix Potter has always loved to sketch and write stories. She finally is going to be published, but the Warne brothers don't think her story The Tale of Peter Rabbit will be a hit. They assign their little brother, Norman, to her, thinking that it will discourage him from trying to be in the publishing business. Norman is set to prove them wrong, and Beatrix is set to prove that a woman can be an author, so together they make her to become one of the best selling authors of all time.
