Peter Rabbit

Several generations were inspired by the classic tale of Beatrix Potter, and numberless adaptations tried to bring the mischievous character closer to modern children.
We know that Disney Studios wanted badly to make a Peter Rabbit film, but finally Sony Pictures got the rights and director Will Gluck ('Easy A', 'Friends with Benefits') was trusted with the task of making a feature film and bringing the story and the characters closer to our modern age. Well, he surely lived up to expectations as in his interpretation Peter is an insolent party animal who really likes to large it up. The problem is, that the new owner of the farmhouse (Domhnall Gleeson) is not exactly a party face and he is fed up with Peter and his friends. Will the support of the charming neighbour girl, Bea (Rose Byrne) be enough to restore peace in the homestead? Or will she make matters worse as Peter and Mr. McGregor are competing for her affections?

There is no point in denying that the film is very entertaining, full of hilarious gags, and Domhnall Gleeson ('About Time', Ex-Machina', 'Goodbye Cristopher Robin') is a good actor, courting amusingly the still beautiful Rose Byrne, but maybe, before or after seeing the film, one should also think about taking one of Potter's books down the shelf and read at least one of the original stories to the children, to give them something else to remember about Peter besides being the twerking rabbit who likes to throw a party.
