La película cuenta la extraordinaria historia de Beatrix Potter (Zellweger). Habla de su amor por su editor, Norman Warne (McGregor), y de su lucha por alcanzar una vida independiente en una época en la que su única opción en la sociedad era la de convertirse en una esposa conformista, posición contra la que se revelaba. Gracias a su pluma, cabe elogiarla como escritora y como artista, por haber creado el mundo de Peter Rabbit y sus amigos.

After the first book is published, Beatrix goes on to a second book and that sells well. One day at lunch, she meets the rest of Norman's family, including his sister, Millie and the two women become fast friends. Norman proposes, but Beatrix's parents object to the marriage proposal. After much argument, they agree to let Beatrix marry Norman provided they wait until the end of the summer.… (more)
