Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning head a stellar ensemble cast in this 'wonderful film about family, independence and the transcendent power of love' (Minneapolis Star Tribune) based on the acclaimed best-selling novel. To escape her cruel, angry father - and discover the truth about her late mother's past - 14-year old Lily Owens flees with her caregiver and friend Rosaleen to a South Carolina town where she's taken in by the bee-keeping Boatwright sisters. Surrounded by the unexpected love, grace and spirituality she encounters there, Lily forms a bond with each of these uniquely gifted women and discovers that sometimes you must leave home in order to find it.

    I wasn't too sure if i would like this movie, as I have read the book and loved it (you know, will the movie ever be as good as the book?) In this case the movie was a great companion to the book and was all around a really great watch.

    This was a fantastic movie.

    A young girl and her maid run away to escape abuse and racism. They end up staying in a pink bee keeper's house where 3 strong independent black women are defying the odds (from oppressive racism) with a thriving honey business.

    It's extremely well done and heart warming yet intense. It's not one of those movies where you feel like you just wasted 2 hours of our life. I guarantee you will like this one!
