Here is your first look at a clip for one of the fall season’s most anticipated films, “The Secret Lives of Bees.”
Set in South Carolina in 1964, the film is the moving tale of Lily Owens a 14 year-old girl who is haunted by the memory of her late mother. To escape her lonely life and troubled relationship with her father, Lily flees with Rosaleen, her caregiver and only friend, to a South Carolina town that holds the secret to her mother’s past. Taken in by the intelligent and independent Boatwright sisters, Lily finds solace in their mesmerizing world of beekeeping, honey and the Black Madonna.
Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, the film stars Dakota Fanning, Paul Bettany, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Nate Parker and Sophie Okonedo. If the film doesn’t work, Latifah, Hudson and Keys could always tour; we’re sure their fans would have no problem with that!
“The Secret Lives of Bees” opens on October 17.
