Miss Potter – Did You See the Movie?
I read the script for Miss Potter, written by Richard Maltby, Jr., a few years ago* and fell in love.
And the movie more than fulfilled the promise of the script.
There are many reasons to see this film.
If you love Peter Rabbit, get thee to a theatre quickly.
If you love the stunning scenery of the Lake District in England, get thee to a theatre quickly.
If you love tender love stories of repressed English people, get thee to a theatre quickly. (If you are trying to imagine Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor as repressed Victorians, get thee to a theatre quickly.)
Peter and Harvey are not imaginary.

*I’d forgotten all about this post and then suddenly out of the blue I got two notices within a week that people had “liked” it. I went and read it, and I like it, too. I hope you do and that if you haven’t seen it already that you find a way to view Miss Potter now.
WRITING UPDATE: Have I mentioned how much I love Akachi Redshanks lately? Yes, she’s in Untune the Sky along with Lord Sinner. I am so very glad that once upon a time I realized I needed a tattoo artist and had to do the research to create one. Finally, Akachi fulfills her destiny in this series! [Well, at least the one I planned for her. It seems she’s definitely got ideas for more.]
