Hull Film Festival: TELL IT TO THE BEES
July 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:20 pm£6 – £8
At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS
In 1952 Dr. Jean Markham returns to her Scottish hometown to take over her late father’s medical practice. She soon becomes ostracized by the community when she begins a passionate romance with a woman who has a young son.
The Scotland of 1952 is no place for the fainthearted. When mill worker Lydia is abandoned by her philandering husband, she struggles to pay the rent and feed herself and son Charlie. Local doctor Jean is one of the few to help and a friendship develops that blossoms into a romance that will scandalise the town. Director Annabel Jankel has crafted a sensitive adaptation of the Fiona Shaw novel that captures oppressive small-town life and the way love has the power to challenge narrow minds and deep-rooted prejudices.
Starring Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger, Gregor Selkirk, Euan Mason
“A sweet but sedate romance, anchored by a terrific turn from Holliday Grainger.” – Lewis Knight, Daily Mirror
TELL IT TO THE BEES is unrated. No one under 18 can be permitted into the cinema.
