The buzz around The Secret Life of Bees has been growing slowly over the past year and it is finally set to be release October 17th. Featuring an all-star line up with Dakota Fanning, Queen Latifah, Sophie Okonedo, plus newcomers Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys, I am sure it will be on of the most anticipated movies of the fall.

Set in South Carolina in 1964, the film [based on the novel of the same name by Sue Monk Kidd] is the moving tale of Lily Owens 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, 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, Lily finds solace in their mesmerizing world of beekeeping, honey and the Black Madonna.
