Description
(Winner of 3 Black Reel Awards/Best Actress (Queen Latifah) and Best Director/Best Screenplay (Gina Prince-Bythewood); Winner of the Hollywood Film Award for Ensemble Acting of the Year and Image Awards for Outstanding Motion Picture and Directing) This 2008 adaptation of Sue Monk Kidd's bestselling novel is set in 1964 South Carolina, telling the tale of Lily Owens (Dakota Fanning), a preteen haunted by the memory of her late mother. To escape her lonely life and abusive father, Lily flees with her caregiver and friend Rosaleen (Jennifer Hudson) 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. Extras include deleted scenes and four featurettes on the making of the film.

"Soars on the strength of strong acting and a script that stubbornly refuses to go all sappy and preachy."—Baltimore Sun

"The filmmakers give Latifah and Fanning room to create characters that breathe in the sweet smell of clover and breathe out the contented sigh of independence."—Philadelphia Inquirer

"Above all, it contains characters I care for, played by actors I admire."—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
