South Carolina, 1964. Lily Owens is a young girl haunted by the memory of her mother, who died in an accident when Lily was just a toddler. When Rosaleen, a woman hired to look after Lily by her father, insults some pivotal figures in the town, Lily and her are forced to flee and find a new home. They come across August, who allows them to stay with her as long as they help with life on her farm. The longer Lily stays on the farm, the more she learns about life, family and making honey.

 Read the book and fall in love with the film

I read the novel first, and it was brilliant. I watched the film second, it was brilliant, too.

The story is compelling, magical, and beautiful, staying true to the novel, and not straying into other dimensions like most Hollywood attempts do. It tells the story of Lily Owens battle through a tough life in 1950s America, and how she overcome the anxiety of her mothers death with the help of four ususpecting female friends.

A worthy watch for a sunday afternoon pick-me-up, but also something that can be watched over and over again.

 Absolutely Amazing.

This is literally one of the best films i have ever watched! I loved everything about it.. Dakota Fanning is quite frankly an amazing actress, espechially when you consider her age and in my opinion she will only get even better with age! Queen Latifah also gives a heart warming potrayal, of June and some of Sophie Okonedo's scenes as May, the destressed and deeply emotional character, are completely heart wrenching. Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson; usually known for their prowess in the music industry, hold their own as credible actresses aswell, performing alongside these other well known actresses and not seeming at all out of place. Overall the film is literally brilliant.. I have nothing negetive to say about it.. Its touching and at times had me crying; a lot! You feel so much for all the characters when they are going through their certain struggles.. Personally i think this is one of my favorite films of all time and i am so glad that i ordered it espechially considering it only costs 2.99!!!!! Worth every penny; BUY NOW!

This is such a wonderful film, and a great cast, both Sophie Okonedo and Alicia Keys at their best. A real heart-warming story; one that will move you to tears and take you on a real emotional rollercoaster!
