TELL IT TO THE BEES

-

Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger, Gregor Selkirk, Kate Dickie

It’s a good month for Grainger ( see below right) as she strikes sparks with Anna Paquin in this gentle, old- fashioned but earnestly appealing lesbian romance set in 1950s Scotland. Their intelligen­t, well- matched performanc­es, as a struggling single mother and the reserved small- town GP she falls in love with, keep Annabel Jankel’s film afloat even as it heads into some overwrough­t melodramat­ic territory. They have genuine sensual chemistry, too. 19 July
