Less about honey more about the sting - The Secret Life of Bees review by JD

Spoiler Alert
01/04/2010

The central theme is the reduction in inequality of American Afro-carribeans and in particular female American Afro-carribeans. It is done with great style some humour and a fair plot but its title and cover give an impression of a rural idyll. For my taste I do not like serious political themes dressed in a rom com style. You may disagree.

Nice Movie - The Secret Life of Bees review by AO

Spoiler Alert

Nice movie harmless enough tackling the subject of a father being violent and a young girl trying escaping and finding a new life and other people through the interest of bees
