TELL IT TO THE BEES Trailer Shows a Lot of Drama in This Love Story with Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger

Tell It to the Bees is an upcoming indie romantic drama that will star Holliday Grainger and Anna Paquin. The lesbian romance set in 1950s England looks very dramatic and is based on the novel by Fiona Shaw. Katie Dickie, Emun Elliot, Lauren Lyle, Steven Robertson, and Gregor Selkirk will round out the cast.

Dr. Jean Markham (Anna Paquin) returns to the town she left as a teenager to take over her late father’s medical practice. When a school-yard scuffle lands Charlie (Gregor Selkirk) in her surgery, she invites him to visit the hives in her garden and tell his secrets to the bees, as she once did. The new friendship between him and the bee keeper brings his mother Lydia (Holliday Grainger) into Jean’s world. In the sanctuary of the doctor’s house the two women find themselves dram to one another in a way that Jean recognizes and fears, and Lydia could never have expected. But, in 1950’s small-town Britain, their new secret can’t say hidden forever.

Annabel Jankel directs Tell It to the Bees using a screenplay from Henrietta and Jessica Ashworth. The film will be released in select theaters and VOD on May 3, 2019.
