ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Noonan, whose previous film, Babe, reached screens 11 years ago, has produced Miss Potter with an eye toward the family audience, although it's unclear whether children will be interested in anything beyond the few brief scenes featuring low-key animation. Some will liken this to Finding Neverland, although the similarities don't stretch beyond the essential premise of seeking a level of understanding about the author of children's books...The strength of Miss Potter is in many ways the simplicity of its intentions. This is an engaging story, well told...The cinematography is stunning (especially the landscapes of the Lake Country), the acting is solid, and Noonan's direction adds an element of whimsy to the tale. With its lack of pretensions, Miss Potter is that rare breed of cinematic animal: a movie whose entire goal is to entertain and perhaps apply a gentle touch to the heart.

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review In every way, "Miss Potter" is a very beautiful thing...The actors and filmmakers create a world that's so inviting that it really is hard to leave...The film does justice to a singular imagination, a mind that conjured lovely, benign images that have spoken to people for more than 100 years. It presents both worlds Beatrix Potter inhabited, turn of the century England and the colorful enchantment inside her mind, while specifically showing -- and this is important -- how such an artist, living in two realities at once, navigated through life...Dreamy, exquisitely sensitive and yet oddly focused, it's a beautiful characterization...It's a mark of Zellweger's astuteness that she shows Potter as never more alive and vigorous, never more in her element, than when tending her farm or bounding through the countryside.

Claudia Puig, USA Today ...a lovely film...reminiscent of "Finding Neverland," without the darker undercurrents.
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun It's first-class entertainment for bookish lads and lasses of all ages...
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer ...a magical little movie in its own right, and a thoroughly pleasant experience.
