Our next Rialto Recommends is Chris Noonan's 2007 biopic MISS POTTER starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. Beatrix Potter (Renée Zellweger) overcomes many obstacles in her quest to become a writer, including a domineering mother and the chauvinism prevalent in Victorian England. She falls in love with her publisher, Norman Warne (Ewan McGregor), and his marriage proposal and a subsequent tragedy change her life forever. Time Magazine said "The director, Chris Noonan, doesn't play to our sentiments, he just lets them naturally evolve--even the animation of a few of her (Potter's) drawings doesn't feel especially forced. The result is an honorable and curiously winning film." While the Christian Science Monitor said "In addition to being a beloved author and illustrator, Beatrix is also presented as an early feminist and environmentalist who took control of her literary empire and saved vast acres of luscious farmland from greedy developers, eventually bequeathing property to Britain's National Trust." MISS POTTER is streaming on Amazon, Vudu (with ads), Tubi and Plex or is available to rent for a modest fee from RedBox, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others.
