The Secret Life of Bees


I read this book quite awhile ago and truly enjoyed the book. Then on Friday, I went to the movie. WOW! If you loved the book, you will truly love the movie. Usually my typical line is "The book is always better than the movie", but this time I think both were equally fabulous. The actors for the movie were well chosen for the roles they played. Numerous scenes in the movie were powerful enough to resort me to sobbing (sorry Tammy for sniffling through the whole movie). I was just drawn into the book in a whole new way and was very impressed with how the movie followed the book. Dakota Fanning is brilliant and many of her scenes were amazing. So, put this movie on your "Must Watch" list and if you haven't read that book, that needs to be on your "Must Read" list too!

It was out standing movie that I have experienced lately. Thought it was better with the most blacks involve in main characters. They are always pulling and reaching the higher standards of acting. by Alicia Keys and Sophie Okonedo is superb. So too Gina Prince-Bythewood commitment shows the grate outcome of the movie. I watch it online from web site called http://www.80millionmoviesfree.com
