Set in the South during the emerging civil rights movement of the 1960s, THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES is a touching and universal story about the need for love, sisterhood, acceptance and redemption.

Haunted by the accidental and tragic death of her mother years before, white, fourteen-year-old Lily Owens and her African-American caretaker Rosaleen set off in search of answers. Seeking refuge with the Boatwright sisters (August, June and May) who run a family business farming bees and making honey, the sisters accept Lily and Rosaleen into their home. Lily soon forms a maternal bond with each of these women whose unique and special gifts help her reconcile the loss of her mother.

Shot on location in North Carolina, THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES stars Dakota Fanning (as Lily), Oscar® nominee Queen Latifah (as August), Oscar® winner Jennifer Hudson (as Rosaleen), Grammy® winner Alicia Keyes (as June) and Oscar® nominee Sophie Okonedo (as May).
