Directed by Doug Atchison
2006, USA, 118 min

Modelled on the classic spelling contest documentary Spellbound, Akeelah and The Bee is the story of Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer) a precocious eleven-year-old from South LA whose way with words could spell a bright future. First, though, she must impress Dr Larabee (Laurence Fishburne), a local genius whose tutelage will be vital if she is to make it to the televised finals in Washington DC.
– BBC
