Based on the beloved lesbian novel Tell It To the Bees will have audiences swooning to the unfolding love story between the enigmatic Dr. Jean Markham (Anna Paquin) and the beautiful Lydia Weekes (Holliday Grainger).
In the UK in the 1950s, Dr. Jean has returned to her hometown to begin a practice of her own. But the townspeople have long memories, and whispers of improper acts as a schoolgirl follow her. Lydia is a young wife with a young son, Charlie, trying to make ends meet as her soldier husband fights his own demons with alcohol and a traumatic past. When he walks out on her, she is left with nowhere to go, until Jean kindly takes Lydia and Charlie into her own home.
As the whispers surrounding Jean’s past get louder, Lydia finds herself drawn to her in a way she never expected, and the two embark on a passionate affair that starts a series of events which neither of them can stop.
This sweeping period drama has an intoxicating mix of romance and magical realism, and is an engrossing story about love and sacrifice.
