Synopsis

Akeelah is a charming but insecure 11-year-old girl from gang-ridden South Central Los Angeles who discovers, by chance, that she has an unlikely talent for spelling. By competing on the spelling bee competition circuit and enlisting the help of a wise mentor, Akeelah might just get the chance to make the National finals and make something of herself against all the odds, in this inspiring and uplifting movie.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
