Product Description:

AKEELAH AND THE BEE is the inspirational story of Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer), an eleven-year-old girl from south Los Angeles with a gift for words. Despite the objections of her mother Tanya (Angela Bassett), Akeelah enters various spelling contests, for which she is tutored by the forthright Dr. Larabee (Laurence Fishburne); her principal Mr. Welch (Curtis Armstrong) and the proud residents of her neighbourhood. Akeelah's aptitude earns her an opportunity to compete for a spot in the Scripps National Spelling Bee and, in turn, unites her neighbourhood who witness the courage and inspiration of one amazing little girl.

I liked this film though my all-time favourite spelling bee film is "Spellbound" (documentary, so a bit different to this one, but more tense and accurate). This is a nice film with a good performanc by Keke Palmer as Akeelah, a young girl who does well in her school spelling bee and then defies the odds to go up levels. Laurence Fishburne plays her coach, and older man who really wants her to get the best, even though it seems tough.
