Akeelah and the Bee

Akeelah and the Bee

Tonight year old Akeelah Anderson's lifetime isn't easy: her father is dead, so her mom ignores her, her brother runs with the regional gangbangers. Her environment threatens to grope her dreams, although she's smart. Reacting to a hazard with the main of her school, Akeelah participates to avoid detention due to her many absences. Much to her embarrassment and surprise, she wins. Her chief requests her to look for instruction from an English professor named Dr. Larabee for its more prestigious regional bee. Akeelah will provide some one to her community to rally around and be proud of -- but only if she could overcome her insecurities and her home life that is distracting as the potential for making it all of the way to the Scripps National Spelling Bee looms. She must acquire past Dr. Larabee's demons, and a field of more experienced and privileged fellow spellers.
