A SIMPLE YET PROFOUND MOVIE! A SIMPLE YET PROFOUND MOVIE! “Most people have no idea about the complicated life goin’ on inside a hive. Bees have a secret life we don’t know anything about.” –August So true! The hive is a metaphor for all that inner complicated stuff that we all live with. The message in the story is simple yet profound: To find “home” with people that truly love and care for you brings healing to your inner turmoil (as exemplified in Lily). But more, to provide that sense of belonging to others (as demonstrated by August) is the greatest service and act of love you can give. Review © David Bruce
Liftin’ someone’s heart, now that matters. The whole problem with people is they know what matters, but they don’t choose it. -August “I can’t think of something I’d rather have more then someone lovin’ me.” -Lily Photos © 2008 Fox Searchlight Pictures. Review © David Bruce
