Tell It to the Bees is well-acted and well-intentioned -- but often undermined by its frustratingly didactic storytelling. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Tell It to the Bees

  • Oct 11, 2019
    Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger star in the period drama Tell It to the Bees. The story follows a single mother who's been abandoned by her husband and is taken in by a local doctor when she and her son are evicted from their home. The acting isn't very good and neither is the script. It doesn't seem to know whose story this is, and at the end it throws in some LGB propaganda; future taking it away from being a character story. A poorly made film, Tell It to the Bees meanders about and is fairly pointless.
