The clip new ideas from Miss Potter (2006) with Renée Zellweger
I had hoped that you might have other stories.
Do you know, I recently remembered one I thought I had forgotten it.
About a duck...
a very stupid duck.
Based on one of your friends?
It's based on myself, I think
It's a story I told a friend once.
My family summers in the Lake District, and there was someone there,
the grounds man's son, who was always interested in my stories.
Miss Beatrix. Are you skulking?
No such thing, Willie Heelis. No. I was drying off my sketch book.
Not bad, Miss Beatrix.
Do you have any animal stories for me today?
I don't. Sorry. Nothing new.
That's Jemima. She doesn't have a story yet.
Not a proper one.
And a stupider duck the world has never seen.
She goes looking for a safe place to lay her eggs
and meets a charming gentleman with a long bushy tail
and very sharp teeth.
The gentlemen offers her his shed and Jemima is surprised to find
that there are so many feathers in it.
But then, as I told you, she is a very stupid duck.
I like it.
I'd love to paint every view in this valley,
but I'm not very good at landscapes.
Wait too long and it won't be here to paint, Miss Beatrix.
Really, that's ridiculous.
No, I'm serious.
The large farms are being broken up into small plots and sold off.
Well, you can't stand in the way of progress.
