Akeelah is a charming but insecure 11-year-old girl from
gang-ridden South Central LA who discovers an unusual talent for spelling.
Encouraged to enter the spelling bee competition circuit to represent her
failing school, Akeelah hopes for the chance to make the National finals. With
the help of a wise mentor, she faces up to the stiff competition in this
inspiring and uplifting film. Featuring inspiring performances from Angela
Bassett, Laurence Fishburne and Keke Palmer.
