Akeelah and the Bee

Spoiler: I really enjoyed this film. It is something to say when my 6-year old says he likes and wants to be like Akeelah when all he will watch is animated. He then said that he wanted to learn how to spell so that he could win a trophy like she did. He thought the ribbons were pretty cool until he saw the trophy she won at the National Spelling (anything else is a 'big person's' show). I say this because it appealed to both of us as well as others that were watching the DVD with us (the twins fell asleep). Basically, it is poor kid from LA that has a gift for spelling, the relationship with others, and the spelling coach. Others can probably review this better than I, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I have not seen a good film in a while. This one filled the bill.
