Just got back from seeing Miss Potter and what a lovely film it was. Such a delightful peaceful kind of story that makes you come out of the cinema really smiling. The scenery in the Lake District really takes your breath away, it was so beautiful, and of course last but not least the Lovely Lloyd, well what can I say, he was awsome. He looked younger somehow but still with a strong Yorkshire accent again and I won't tell you all the story as I don't want to spoil it for anyone who is going to see it.
If you are thinking of going, I wholeheartedly recommend it. It has the same kind of feel as Monarch with no violence or bad language and the same kind of scenery, so go for it.
Oh, it is lovely! Yes, take a box of tissues, you will need them! It does have a happy ending, though. Lloyd Owen isn't in it that much but he is very good. Mmm, the scenery is stunning, sweeping shots of the Lake District! The star of the show for me was Emily Watson as Millie, she was great!
I have to say , it was really nice to hear a little ripple of recognition in the cinema when William Heelis turned around. I think people thought "Ooo I know him, it's that bloke ...you know..!!" I wanted to stand up and shout "Yes, it's The Lovely Lloyd and he belongs to Boglies!!" BUT, overwhelmed by the sight of The Lovely LLoyd; I just melted back into my seat. OxBo
Have just seen that "Miss Potter" dvd is released on Play.com on 23rd April for anyone who didn't see the film at the cinema but would like to see it. I did see the film but will also buy the dvd not only because Lloyd Owen is in it looking yummy, but because I really enjoyed it and would like to see it again.
They have a special offer exclusive to Play.com of 4 Beatrix Potter Art Cards along with the dvd for £12.99 but just the dvd on it's own is £14.99 which is strange.
Maddie He doesn't come in it until about two thirds of the way through, but then you see quite a bit of him but it is certainly a lovely film. Your banner is great too, can't keep up with all your changes.
Miss Potter 'DVD' warning....... I recently bought a copy of 'M.P.' and , although, the film played fine; the extra features were silent, not a single sound. I took it back and they gave me a replacement, but that was the same. They put it down to a faulty first batch. OxBo
Just got my copy of Miss Potter from play.com, so glad I didn't buy it when it first came out as it is now down to £5.99. I will watch it again tonight and although Lloyd doesn't come into it until about two thirds of the way through, it will be worth waiting for.
Yes I always use play.com and have never had any trouble and they don't charge you postage either. Another dvd I have just received from them only cost £1.99, amazing value.
I did watch Miss Potter again last night and thought Lloyd looks much younger in it, but he looks really cute in that tweed cap. The scenery in the Lake District is gorgeous and I always find I'm smiling when this film ends. You should certainly watch it Marie, I'm sure you would enjoy it.
Is it a good film Marie ? Well I know everything with Lloyd in it is always good for you Just like everything with Al in it is great to see for me
I just read an advert about Miss Potter in a magazine that the dvd is now available in our country. Don't know if I should order it, or maybe will wait till I see it somewhere in a shop, as I heard my daughter in law had problems last week in ordering someting by post. And not to forget me too ! I realize that you can better buy things in a shop to avoid problems
Perhaps I've been fortunate Maddie but we've never had any problem getting items off the internet. We usually save ourselves quite a bit of money. Jeff got his new camera off Amazon, he ordered it at 5pm on the Thursday and I had it in the office delivered by approx. 11am the next day!! We get our inks from there, usually saving about £15 compared to if we buy them in the shops around here. But it is a matter of choice. I think you have to make doubly sure that you can 'see' what you're actually buying well on screen, all the details.
Miss Potter is great if you like a gentle, fairly romantic, little life story set in the beautiful Lake District. Just my kind of thing
