Plot Summary: Beatrix Potter (Renée Zellweger) is trapped in a society that does not understand her. Her family doesn’t even understand her. Her parents, Rupert (Bill Paterson) and Helen Potter (Barbara Flynn), are convinced that the life of wealth and privilege they provide her with is more than adequate. They continuously discourage Beatrix from any intellectual activities and persuade her to take care of the household instead. Thankfully, she still finds time to amuse herself with her writings and illustrations. Encouraged by her friends, she approaches a publisher named Norman Warne (Ewan McGregor), who is immediately thrilled by her work. Soon, her first book is a popular item and Beatrix is able to wriggle free of her oppressive family, much to their disapproval. While her career as a children’s book author blossoms, she gains a new sense of independence. Even an unexpected romance with Norman develops shortly thereafter and soon the two are engaged to be married. Still, her wedding plans cause major friction with her parents back at home and Beatrix finds her problems continuing as she struggles for happiness and love.
