Movie recommendation!

I watched the most darling, movie yesterday: Miss Potter.

First off, it must be said that Renée Zellweger is the most talented actress of her era.

Second off, I never knew how fabulous Beatrix Potter was!

She was such a progressive, modern woman plucked down in the Victorian Era.

Britain owes her a great debt, because she donated 4,000 acres of land in the Lake District to a conservation group, having bought up all this farmland during her lifetime to protect it from developers. Can you imagine what this land would look like now if it weren't for her? Probably filled with shopping malls and McDonald's. Instead, it's a slice of beautiful nature for everyone to enjoy.

If you watch this movie, be prepared to cry (if you're a sap like me, that is). It's really quite a charming movie.
