Trailer Park | The Secret Lives of Bees

20 08 2008

Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson and Oscar-nominees Queen Latifah and Sophie Okonedo headline a cast of talented women in one of the fall’s most-anticipated films, “The Secret Lives of Bees.”

Set in South Carolina in 1964, the tale of Lily Owens (Dakota Fanning), 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 (Hudson), 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 (“Love and Basketball”), the film stars Latifah, Fanning, Hudson, Okonedo, and Alicia Keys.

The trailer looks engrossing and is cinematically intoxicating; needless to say, we can’t wait for this film!

“The Secret Lives of Bees” open nationwide on October 17.
