Secret Life of Bees, The

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 by Sue Monk Kidd.

To escape her cruel, angry father -- and discover the truth about her late mother's past -- 14-year-old Lily Owens (Fanning) flees with her caregiver and friend Rosaleen (Jennifer Hudson) to a South Carolina town where she's taken in by the bee-keeping Boatwright sisters (Latifah, Alicia Keys, Sophie Okonedo). 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.
