There are only so many times you can watch “Carol,” you know?
Yes, we understand that it’s perfect in pretty much every way, what with the impeccable 1950s period detail, Cate Blanchett’s gorgeous outfits, Cate Blanchett’s dom attitude, Cate Blanchett’s… well, literally her everything.
And it has a happy ending. So it’s as if the movie-making goddesses heard our yearning for more of that and decided it was time for another lesbian romance set in the 1950s. Which brings us to “Tell it to the Bees.”
Based on Fiona Shaw’s 2009 novel, the currently-in-production drama stars bisexual Academy Award winner Anna Paquin as a doctor in a rural British village who falls in love with a young woman played by Holliday Grainger (“Tulip Fever”). Grainger’s hetero romance has recently hit the rocks, and the only cure is some lady doctoring, and that more than suits our requirements.
Currently shooting in Scotland with director Annabel Jankel, it’ll probably hit screens in 2018, even though we’re ready for it now.
