TCP#32: Miss Potter

Welcome to my very late, April 6th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes! Boy, oh boy, I am such a lousy host! So much happened during the weekend and we got home from our trip last night at around 11:00P.M. I was so exhausted from the trip that I can't even move a muscle and had no energy to even turn on my computer. I was able to sleep for a few hours so here I am...

Anyway, our theme for this week is Easter / Spring Movies. I know you must all be wondering what to post for this week. Of course, you could post religious films like the Passion of the Christ. That is one great Easter film. Or you could go for the Easter bunnies... the remake of Alice in Wonderland perhaps? Then of course there are the movie features for the kids like the Winnie the Pooh's Easter Egg Hunt. And of course, there are the spring movies which are easier since you will only feature movies that came out during the spring season or movies that simply depict my favorite season: SPRING TIME!

And my pick: Miss Potter. Why Miss Potter? Because the movie is English (although Zelwegger is American) and is a biopic (or biographical film) of the children's author and illustrator Beatrix Potter, creator of the Peter Rabbit & Rabbits characters. I enjoyed watching her lifestory and of course, the animated sequences featuring the characters from her stories.

Here's a short synopsis from IMDb:

Thirty years old and single, Beatrix Potter lives in London with her social-climbing parents, who are exasperated that she has turned down any number of eligible young men. Her only real friends are the animals which since childhood she has lovingly drawn and made up stories about. She finally succeeds in selling a book of the stories, and it becomes Norman Warne's first project. He quickly falls in love with both the book and Beatrix and together they carefully arrange publication. This proves the first of many successes, offering her the possibility of escaping from both her parents' way of life and London.

How about you, what's your Easter/Spring Movie? Come share it with us here on TCP and enter your TCP link to the MckLinky below:

Thanks for joining us this week although I am very late in posting. I really do apologize! Next week, we will feature Julia Roberts movies so till next time. Take care Couchers and have a Happy TCP!

And oh, hope everyone had a great weekend.... Happy Easter to all!

Easter movies are not so popular here in the Philippines. Most people here are not celebrating Easter that's why. They just attend mass on Easter Sunday and that's it.

Miss Potter seems a good movie for kids based on its synopsis. Hope I could find this on torrents.

I am late too. sorry for that. i can't link on mcklinky. it says there's an internal error.
