Tell It To the Bees + Q&A
25 Aug 2019 5pm
Adapted from Fiona Shaw’s 2009 novel of the same name, Tell It To the Bees follows the story of Dr Jean Markham (Anna Paquin), who returns to the town she left as a teenager to take over her late father’s medical practice. When a school-yard scuffle lands Charlie (Gregor Selkirk) in her surgery, she invites him to visit the hives in her garden and tell his secrets to the bees, as she once did. The new friendship between the boy and the bee keeper brings his mother Lydia (Holliday Grainger) into Jean’s world. In the sanctuary of the doctor’s house the two women find themselves drawn to one another in a way that Jean recognises and fears, and Lydia could never have expected. But, in 1950’s small-town Britain, their new secret can’t stay hidden forever.
A live Q&A with author Fiona Shaw will follow the screening.
