Date: 80s, 90s.
Genre: Romance, crime.
Country of origin: Don't know, predominantly Caucasian actors.
A man who was in prison for murder (or manslaughter) gets released, having fulfilled his sentence.
He tries to find a job in a small, rural town but people know about his past and nobody wants to employ him. Finally he gets a job on the farm of a recently widowed woman.
Her husband was trying his hands at many projects, one of these was being an apiarist which lead to his eventual demise, when his bees stung him to death (maybe it was an allergic reaction).
The farm was scattered with old car wrecks and in one of these lived the bees.
The man and the woman fall in love over time and they get married.
About the woman:
When she was a girl, her father used to lock her up somewhere for some reason.
In one scene, she visits her childhood home in town.
She hates the town, she only ventures into town if it's necessary.
She was pregnant at the time the ex-convict showed up.
Later in the movie a woman (a librarian?) gets killed by an unknown assailant and the townsfolk suspect the ex-convict because of his past and because he met the victim on the day of her death in the library.
He gets detained, there is a trial, they find the real killer, the ex-convict gets acquitted, it's a happy ending.
Places in the Heart (1984).
Labor Day (2013).
I keep thinking that something factual must be wrong with this, because the man killed by his bees should be enough to put the flick on the map, but nothing. Maybe it's a very obscure movie.
