Queen Bees is a feel-good comedy set in a senior’s home, and features a great cast of Ellen Burstyn (Interstellar, The Last Picture Show), James Caan (The Godfather), Jane Curtin (3rd Rock From The Sun), and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future).
While her house undergoes repairs, fiercely independent senior Helen (Academy Award® winner Ellen Burstyn) moves into a nearby retirement community ― just temporarily. Once behind the doors of Pine Grove Senior Community, she encounters lusty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a hotbed of bullying “mean girls” the likes of which she hasn’t encountered since high school, all of which leaves her yearning for the solitude of home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics Helen discovers that it’s never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love.
"Queen Bees touches gently and sympathetically on the inescapable challenges of aging... But the movie's lesson is that it's our connections, strengthening old ones and making new ones, that make what passes for okay pretty good." Roger Ebert
