Tell It to the Bees 2018
TV-MA | 1h 46min | Drama, Romance | 3 May 2019 (USA)
In 1950s small town Britain, a doctor develops a relationship with her young patient’s mother.
Tell It To The Bees, is a beautiful film set in a time that those, who gave this film one star, possibly wished would return. A time when to choose who we loved was considered a vile act, but to act vilely to those that did was expected behaviour. The film tells its story with grace, leaving the audience to decide who, if anyone in particular, are the victims. Special mention for Gregor Selkirk who is captivating as the young son, caught in the middle of the storm. Even though several have seemingly chosen to make a moral judgement in their score (for a film that isn’t really that contentious) I will simply give what I hope is a more reasoned assessment. A excellent film and well worth your time.
