Queen Bees (2021)

Reviewed by Jayne S (Library Staff)

Ellen Burstyn’s character is a widow who accidentally sets fire to her kitchen. She reluctantly moves into a senior housing facility while her home is being repaired.

She tries to join a bridge group, but finds that she has wandered into a senior citizen version of high school mean girls.
The story revolves around her adjustment to the facility, standing her ground, and slowly accepting that she may need to sell her house.
The supporting characters include Jane Curtain, Ann-Margret, James Caan, and Christopher Lloyd. They all are in their golden years and portray well the challenges that senior citizens face.

I enjoyed the sentiment of the movie. It was a gentle film, with laughter and tears along the way to the uplifting conclusion.
