Akeelah and the Bee, 2006
We watched it last night, the girls (7, 9 and 13) and I. We loved it!
A sweet movie, with a young main actress who was very, very good! We could not established how much exactly it is (or it is not) based on a true story-- but it was a good show!
If your family likes spelling challenges, Scrabble and word origins like our family does, you will enjoy this film!
