Movie Sunday (a day late...).

For this Sunday's movie - I'm watching "The Secret Life of Bees".

Based on the novel written by Sue Monk Kidd - the movie stars Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Dakota Fanning, and Sophie Okonedo. The movie is based in 1960's, in South Carolina. Lily (Dakota Fanning) is on the search for the story behind her mother. Leaving a horribly abusive father to start her mission with Rosaleen, she ends up traveling to Tiburon, where they meet the Boatwright sisters. Establishing a connection between August Boatwright and her mother, she stays with the Boatwrights, working and earning her food and shelter. The beautiful relationship that builds over honey and Lily's Mom, along with the struggles that everyone faces, makes for one of the most spectacular films I have ever seen. This is sure to become a classic.
