Raves for THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES!

See what the critics had to say about the movie based on the best-selling novel, below!

  •  "A special film with a big heart." -- Ben Lyons, AT THE MOVIES
  • "The buzz is out. 'The Secret Life of Bees is smart, sassy and deliciously sweet." -- Prairie Miller, WBAI RADIO
  • "Magnificent! A movie experience everyone will love." -- Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV
  • "Dakota Fanning gives an astonishingly perceptive performance. Not since Jodie Foster has there been a child star with such range and sensitivity." -- Leah Rozen, PEOPLE
  • "Adapter-director Gina Prince-Bythewood has made an honorable movie, wonderfully attentive to the skills of its excellent cast, that turned this devout cynic into a believer." – Richard Corliss, TIME

 

  • "If you were moved by the book you will find this adaptation affecting and emotionally satisfying." – Claudia Puig, USA TODAY
  • "Queen Latifah is the kind of actor who makes you sit taller, breathe deeper, feel stronger. Her poignant work in Gina Prince-Bythewood's 'The Secret Life of Bees' merits a pillar in the movie colonnade alongside those of Gary Cooper, John Wayne and Denzel Washington." – Carrie Rickey, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
  • "August is the film’s emotional center, and Queen Latifah's wry sense of gravitas anchors it... Okonedo's face is a marvel. Every thought, every emotion flickers across it like clouds obscuring the sun." – Michael O'Sullivan, WASHINGTON POST
