    The Toronto International Film Festival has started as of yesterday and run until September 13th. With over 100 movies to view throughout the festival, one movie a friend of mine told me about The Secret Life of Bees which is a novel Sue Monk Kidd. Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood features Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Dakota Fanning, Sophie Okonedo, and Jennifer Hudson.

    Set in South Carolina in 1964, the film is the moving tale of Lily Owens a 14 year-old girl who is haunted by the memory of her late mother. To escape her lonely life and troubled relationship with her father, Lily flees with Rosaleen, her caregiver and only friend, to a South Carolina town that holds the secret to her mother’s past. Taken in by the intelligent and independent Boatwright sisters, Lily finds solace in their mesmerizing world of beekeeping, honey and the Black Madonna.
