I got this film from Netflix and I thought that this film was outstanding. I heard alot of great things from this film and I just had to watch this and my mom and my dad watched it with me also. I give "The Secret Life of Bees" an A and 3.5 out of 4 stars. It was a drama film that is good and it's also a sad film because it is true of how prejudice people are. Dakota Fanning, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Sophie Okonedo, and Paul Bettany did an outstanding job acting in this drama film. Will Smith did a terrific job as producer in "The Secret Life of Bees". Jada Pinkett Smith did a terrific job as executive producer in "The Secret Life of Bees". Watch this everybody, it might teach all of you something.
