WILD STRAWBERRIES: THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES

Director: Gina Prince-Blythewood

114 minutes| Colour| U.S.A.| 2008


Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for the over 55s.

A best-selling novel and book club favourite is adapted for this sometimes painful but often enchanting film about hope and love. The setting is 1960s rural South Carolina, where racial tensions are still very much a reality. Jennifer Hudson is Rosaleen, the black housekeeper for a cruel father and his teenage daughter, Lily, played by the irrepressible Dakota Fanning. When Rosaleen is racially abused, Lily helps her to escape to the home of beekeeper August (the brilliant Queen Latifah) and her housemates, June and May. The five women jostle for space and try to settle into life together in August’s brightly painted house, where she looks over them all as they come to terms with pasts, presents and varying hopes for the future. A wonderful and warming tale for July in Dublin.

€4 per person including complimentary tea/coffee.
