Tell It To The Bees (2019) lesbian movie
Tell It To The Bees will be released May 3, 2019. Abandoned by her philandering husband, Lydia (portrayed by Holliday Grainger) is in an increasingly desperate situation: emotional turmoil aside, her earnings from factory work are not sufficient to pay the rent. Lydia’s son, Charlie, meanwhile, is getting bullied at school. Injuries from one such altercation send him to Dr. Jean Markham (portrayed by Anna Paquin), who has recently returned to town and found the welcome lukewarm. Charlie is curious about the bee colonies Jean maintains in her yard and the two form a bond. Bees, Jean explains, make an excellent repository for one’s secrets. When Lydia and Charlie are evicted, Jean invites them to stay in her home, an act of generosity that raises eyebrows throughout the village. Lydia soon learns why Jean is regarded with hostility — and she begins to see something in the kind doctor that takes her by surprise. Based on the novel by Fiona Shaw, Tell It To The Bees is a story of courage in the face of terrifying intolerance.
