This past weekend I went to see the movie 'The secret life of bees' based on the best-selling book from 2002 by Sue Monk Kidd. You MUST see this movie, it was so good! I went in not knowing much about the story; went purely by the phenomenal cast. That did not disappoint: Each performance was amazing. Jennifer Hudson as Rosaleen Daise redeemed herself after her awful acting on 'Sex and the City movie', Alicia Keys as June Boatwright proves that she can act as well as sing (and how insanely beautiful she is), Queen Latifah as August Boatwright was her awesome loveable self and Dakota Fanning as Lily Owens was brilliant, that little girl has SKILLS.Without giving any of the plot away, the film deals with civil rights & history, racism, feminism, religion, lonliness and the need to be loved and the search for one's identity. Pretty heavy stuff, huh? While this is a movie that will make you think, it will also make you FEEL. Go and see it tonight, you won't leave with a dry eye!

Dakota is turning into a pretty young lady with acting chops!
