Tell It to the Bees


Adapting Fiona Shaw's 2009 novel, Tell It to the Bees is set in Scotland in 1952. Lydia (Holliday Grainger) - a mill worker - and her son Charlie (Gregor Selkirk) are abandoned by her errant husband, and one of the only locals to lend her a hand is town doctor Jean (Anna Paquin).

Their friendship is destined to go much deeper, however, and soon their status as figures of local scandal overrides all of their lives, with young Charlie in the middle of it all.

A story that keenly observes small towns, small-mindedness and small mercies.
