If you are familiar with the game of Spelling Bee, then you will surely love this only elaborate film made on the topic. And if you are not aware of the game, then it will be even more enlightening and entertaining for you to know about it. The movie revolves around a small town girl who wins a big championship and that also by not offending her opponents at the competition. The director beautifully explains what team spirit and sportsmanship should mean to the players. He also stresses on the student teacher relationship which should have freedom and discipline both in the right percentages. The screenplay is tight enough to get you involved after 10 minutes of watching and you enjoy the movie asking for more in the end. Another sensitive topic of racism is handled in the most subtle manner in the screenplay. The entire starcast excels lead by Laurence Fishburne as the teacher. The movie is one of those which can be shown in schools to boost up the confidence and spirit among the young ones. A pure delight to watch and an entertaining flick for all ages. Highly Recommended for the younger generation.
Directed By Doug Atchison
Starring : Keke Palmer, Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bessett
