Renee Zellweger plays famous children's author Beatrix Potter
A film about one of Cumbria's most famous residents was due to have its Lake District premiere on Sunday.

Miss Potter, starring Oscar-winning Rene Zellweger as children's author Beatrix Potter, is being screened at Bowness-on-Windermere's Royalty Cinema.

Several of the film's stars will be attending, including Lloyd Owen, who plays the heroine's husband.

Beatrix Potter lived at Hill Top Farm in the village of Sawrey, where she wrote many of her books.

While shooting the film in April, Zellweger unveiled a bronze statue at Bowness which depicts three children releasing Potter's character Jemima Puddle-Duck.

The film also stars Ewan McGregor as Norman Warne, Beatrix Potter's publisher.

Half of the film was shot on the Isle of Man.
