Now, at fourteen, she yearns for forgiveness and a mother's love. Living on a peach farm in South Carolina with her harsh and unforgiving father, she has only one friend, Rosaleen, a black servant. When racial tension explodes one summer afternoon, and Rosaleen is arrested and beaten, Lily chooses to flee with her. Fugitives from justice, the pair follow a trail left by the woman who died ten years before. Finding sanctuary in the home of three beekeeping sisters, Lily starts a journey as much about her understanding of the world as about the mystery surrounding her mother.

Dakota Fanning comes of age in "The Secret Life of Bees" and in the somewhat similar but less successful " Hounddog ." She's not a kid anymore. The visuals in THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES pay tribute to the beauty of the South, its warm "honey" tones and thick, sweet air. The music is particularly wonderful and enriches the film's emotional core.

But it's not a fully successful dramatization because the movie's heroes are almost all saintly and... Lily Owens is a fourteen-year-old girl who lives under the care of her abusive father T-Ray. She's constantly tormented by her blurred memory of the day that her mother died, and desperately wishes to know what really happened.
