“Queen Bees” Playing at Cinema Art Theatre

September 9, 2021

View Screenings

“Queen Bees,” is a delightful romantic-comedy about the young at heart.

While her house undergoes repairs, fiercely independent senior Helen (played by Ellen Burstyn) temporarily moves into the nearby Pine Grove Community Center. There she encounters lusty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a hotbed of bullying “mean girls” (played by Ann-Margaret, Jane Curtain and Loretta Divine) the likes of which she hasn’t encountered since high school. It 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. The all-star cast also includes James Caan and Christopher Lloyd.  [2020, US, 101 min, Rated: PG-13].

Thelma Adas of “AARP Movies for Grownups” says, “An ideal date night or friends’ group evening out. Love is love and there’s no expiration date. Or, as Curtin’s bossy biddy says, tongue planted firmly in cheek, “Eighty is the new 18.” Rosalie Kicks of “MovieJawn” writes, “the film manages to touch on some heavy subjects like the inability to continue your independence while at the same time delivers some amusing moments that leave yo

u smiling.”
