Renée Zellweger, Ewan McGregor, Emily Watson, Barbara Flynn
Biography of renowned early 20th century children’s book author (The Tale of Peter Rabbit) Beatrix Potter, played with a great deal of twinkly wincing by Zellweger, who chats with her characters, which are animated to make the movie even more adorable. The starchy exchanges and all the cutesiness put me off, though many in the audience around me clearly ate it up. 92 minutes.
DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track by director Chris Noonan, a making-of featurette, a re-telling of Peter Rabbit and a music video by Katie Melua.
