After listening to Queen Latifah talk about her role in The Secret Life of Bees in an interview on NPR I'm eager to go see this movie. I haven't read he book by the same name, but I'm definitely going to pick it up when I see it in the book store.
My nephew and brother-in-law are beekeepers, so that draws me to the movie a little bit too. We always buy a few jars of honey from them when it's available. There are few things as sweet and satisfying as a big 'ole jar of clover honey. Their honey is produced by bees that live in a huge field of clover on my father-in-law's farm. And the spring-fed stream of crystal clear water nearby makes it all better.
