Tell It To The Bees

tell it to the bees

Dr. Jean Markham (Anna Paquin) returns to the town she left as a teenager to take over her late father’s medical practice.

When a school-yard scuffle lands Charlie (Gregor Selkirk) in her surgery, she invites him to visit the hives in her garden and tell his secrets to the bees, as she once did. The new friendship between the boy and the bee keeper brings his mother Lydia (Holliday Grainger) into Jean’s world. In the sanctuary of the doctor’s house the two women find themselves drawn to one another in a way that Jean recognizes and fears, and Lydia could never have expected. But, in 1950’s small-town Britain, their new secret can’t stay hidden forever.

Love has a way of finding us when we least expect it. Directed by Annabel Jankel, this tender period drama, set in small-town, postwar Scotland, depicts the emergence of a love that while rescuing two women from isolation, also places them in danger.

Based on the novel by Fiona Shaw, Tell It To The Bees is a story of courage in the face of terrifying intolerance.
