Synopsis

In this inspirational drama, an adaptation of Sue Monk Kidd's best-selling novel, Dakota Fanning stars as teenager Lily, growing up in America's racially segregated South in the early 1960s. She is haunted by the memory of her late mother and bullied by her bitter father, and when her best friend, African-American housekeeper Rosaleen (Jennifer Hudson), is beaten for attempting to register to vote, they decide to run away together. They eventually meet the wise, honey-making Boatwright sisters (Queen Latifah, Sophie Okonedo and Alicia Keys) who just may hold the key to secrets in Lily's, and her mother's, past.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
