Miss Potter (2006) short review

I was underwhelmed by this movie, about Beatrix Potter’s publishing of her children’s books and her relationship with her publisher, but it’s not really bad. Everyone hits the right notes, and it’s not tootwee (despite the animated drawings), but it just felt very Hallmark Hall of Fame. I did like Emily Watson as the independent Millie. The costuming was fine – lots of tweedy Edwardian suits – altho I saw this on a plane, so my view wasn’t very good.
