Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah on Nov. EBONY Cover

The Secret Life Of Bees, based on the best-selling novel by Sue Monk-Kidd,is an inspirational coming of age story set in the South during 1964, the year of the Civil Rights Act and intensifying racial unrest.

This film is a moving tale of Lily Owens (Dakota Fanning) a 14 year-old girl who is haunted by the memory of her late mother. To escape her lonely life and troubled relationship with her father, Lily flees with Rosaleen (Jennifer Hudson), her caregiver and only friend, to a South Carolina town that holds the secret to her mother's past. Taken in by the intelligent and independent Boatwright sisters (Queen Latifah, Sophie Okonedo and Alicia Keys), Lily finds solace in their mesmerizing world of beekeeping.

The Secret Life of Bees is a powerful story of coming-of-age, of the ability of love to transform our lives, and the often unacknowledged longing for the universal feminine divine. Addressing the wounds of loss, betrayal, and the scarcity of love, the movie demonstrates the power of women coming together to heal those wounds, to mother each other and themselves, and to create a sanctuary of true family and home.

The ladies get along remarkably together and with their other Secret Life of Bees co-stars. The Oscar buzz swarming, let’s hope it doesn’t take an ugly turn much like Jennifer’s first shot at the gold with another R&B diva.
