Top 3 movies about favourite writers from my childhood

Miss Potter - the first class cast (Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor) just shines in this heartwarming journey through the life of a visionary author and illustrator Beatrix Potter. Delightful animated segments bring to life Peter Rabbit and the rest of her beloved characters.

Finding Neverland - a touching story about how Peter Pan came to be. Johnny Depp delivers a poweful performance as Sir James Matthew Barrie and gets an Academy Award nomination for best actor... along with 5 other nominations for the film, from which the Polish composer Jan Andrzej Paweł Kaczmarek gets the Oscar for best score.

A Bear Named Winnie is probably the most unpopular from all tree, and as you can guess from the title it recreates the story behind A. A. Milne's inspiration for "Winnie the Pooh". It is a great TV movie and if you are fortunate enough to catch it you'll probably agree that it is worth its possition in this Top 3 along with the two major productions.

I strongly recommend that you spare the time and watch it (the full available on YouTube)
