Tell It to the Bees: British lesbian romance movie release date and trailer
The trailer for lesbian movie Tell It to the Bees has dropped, and people are thrilled at the idea of watching the queer love story.
X-Men star Paquin plays Dr Jean Markham, who returns to her hometown in order to run her dad’s medical practice.
She befriends one of her child patients and shows him the beehives in her garden, before meeting his mother, Grainger’s Lydia. The two start a love affair, prompting malicious rumours to spread through the small town in an era when same-sex relations were illegal.
The lesbian romance film is set to come out on May 3 in the US before being released in the UK on June 7.

After the trailer dropped on Thursday (March 7), people rushed to vocalise their excitement about the lesbian romance, which comes after The Favourite was nominated for four Oscars and won one last month.
One of these delighted people tweeted: “I’m so excited for Tell It to the Bees, the chemistry between them is huge.”
Another said: “omg lesbians I’m in love with the Tell It to the Bees (2019) trailer…. We will be supporting!”
“TELL IT TO THE BEES WARRIORS UNITE.”
Others were more obviously fervent in their support, like the user who wrote: “EXCUSE ME WHILE I DIE.”
Some were delighted with the film’s poster, which features Paquin and Grainger embracing against a backdrop of honeycomb. One fan wrote: “THE OFFICIAL POSTER FOR TELL IT TO THE BEES IS A MASTERPIECE.”
