Traditionally kilts are lad wear. But when a lassie loves another lassie who takes on the gender role of a lad, anything goes. Most women akin of western culture may not find men in the tartan attire very appealing. But Anna Paquin will be seeking Scottish lesbian stud love in her new project Tell It To The Bees. Her lover will be Holliday Grainger. The twist? The romance is set in the 1950s. I’m not sure if detachable plastic penises were in abundant production just yet back then. Or the option to throw that thing in the dishwasher after use. Hope these ladies are brave-hearts. Love really is a battlefield.
Filming has begun on historical lesbian romance Tell It To The Bees, based on the novel by Fiona Shaw of the same name. Get ready to see some significant looks exchanged between Anna Paquin and co-star Holliday Grainger. Deadline reports that the story follows a single mother, played by Grainger, who meets the small village’s Doctor Jean Markham, played by Paquin, when her son Charlie is taken under the doctor’s wing after being bullied in school. Markham encourages Charlie to tell his secrets to the bees, a Scottish tradition amongst beekeepers, who share their big life events with the hive.
I can’t lie. I have great expectations for two mildly attractive sun deprived pale princesses to pat each other’s punani on film. Just because women who kiss other women are awesome by default. But honestly given the other details like time period and place, kind of has me doubting things. How risqué can two women be in a 1950s Scotland? Then they’re also whispering their secrets to bees. Are bees and lesbians working together to take down the patriarchy? I really don’t care either way. Just want to see Anna blow Holliday’s bagpipe.
