Definitely a tear jerker. However I really felt it needed a bit more plot to it sp only 4 stars and not 5. Great acting from everyone.
I enjoyed this movie and found it touching and sweet. Good cast and well worth watching
I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. Very touching and quite emotional at times. Who knew Alicia Keys could act!!
Such a lovely movie. Really enjoyed this. Such good performances from all these actors.
Quite a tear jerker. Fantastic acting. Worth watching.
Very enjoyable movie with something to say. Great performances.
a bit too american smaltzy to be a good movie but ok viewing for $2
Nowhere near as good as the book.
Well - the secret life of bees remains a secret - they sent me an incompatable CD
. . . Also I notice it seems an old disc . .perhaps that did not help
Perhaps they will rectify ? ? ?
Beautifully filmed and acted and a real tear jerker with substance.
Told with obvious love and attention, but comes across as one dimensional and dull
Touching story, well acted.
a nice story with a happy ending
i totally loved this film, so well acted just a beautiful movie, you dont get many movies like this very often!
A beautiful film. Characters are interesting and beautifully portrayed. the story takes the audience through a vast range a emotions....unexpected and so beautiful....
Bit of a midday matinee this one. A good ensemble cast and strong performance from Dakota with a southern drawl. Paul Bettany pops up in an unusual role as well as her abusive father. If you like The Colour Purple and similar films, this one should please.
Good cast and acting although not as moving as I was expecting. Interesting to see how "black" and "white" things were back then.
Fantastic . Enjoyed it very much
A well told story. It pleased all the family.
i have been trying so long to find this movie i loved it it was so moving
lovely movie would recommend.
This movie shows the warmth of humans - black or white - can heal deep devisions in time. The bees are an example of co-operation. Great acting.
Don't let the title put you off! Brilliantly acted by all except Alicia Keys (sorry). Beautiful characters, interesting story. Highly recommended!
enjoyable and a great cast !
a lovely story, about a young girl who was bieng abused by her father and escapes to fing a longing place where she thinks her mother had lived, and find out if it was true that her mother deserted her before she died
Wonderful movie, top class performances, sad though. Hopefully those times are over
Dakota played Lilly real well, the story was very moving, sad but interesting and very touching. But would say more a "girlie" movie. Well worth a watch
I really enjoyed this movie. Great acting, great storyline. Cried my eyes out! Good movie if you girls want to curl up on the couch and watch a nice movie and have a good cry!
Why do Americans always have to ruin everything with schmaltz?
A great cast that made this a very good movie. Each character was intriguing. Intense, maybe even dark at times, but a terrific portayal of America in that time. Quite a moving tale. A definate must-see.
I liked it, had a little teary moment here and there and it was (what I call) a real "American" story. I don't know much about Dakota Fanning but I liked her in this role. Keep some tissues handy.
An unxepectedly brilliant film with A cast
Great movie - Feel good. Good actors too.
loved this movie, was very sad and moving, just a great movie :)
Good movie to watch for a girls night.
This is a great movie and one I would like to own.
I highly recommend .
Loved it...definitely a keeper. Beautiful story and life lessons!
Yes, a beautiful movie. Excellent acting by all cast members. An interesting time to see what happened in America. And a great insight into bees... I would recommend this movie.
A good movie highlighting how far America has come from racism.
The most beautifulest movie i have ever seen very sad but the plot is just amazing would watch it again and probaly own it
