The heartwarming first trailer to Sue Monk Kidd's adapted drama starring Dakota Fanning has been released by Fox Searchlight Pictures.
Fox Searchlight Pictures have presented the first sneak peek into the drama movie "The Secret Life of Bees" through the release of its first trailer. Exposing the line of talented cast ensemble, including Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys and Sophie Okonedo, the footage displays the heart-warming clips of a girl's journey in finding her identity in her tortured life.
Lily Owens is a fourteen-year-old girl living in Tiburon, South Carolina in 1964. Escaping from her abusive father, she brings along her fierce-hearted but caring African American caregiver, Rosaleen Daise who has insulted the town's racists. When she finally finds a place to hide at the bees and honey's world of the Boatwrights sisters, she is up for something more than hiding.
Based on the 2002 bestselling novel by Sue Monk Kidd, "Secret Life" is adapted and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. Before it is released in theaters on October 17, it will be screened first at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival in September.
