USA / English
"Changing the world... one word at a time.
"A young girl from South Los Angeles tries to make it to the National Spelling Bee.
A great, inspirational, feel-good movie
The commercial made me smile. It made me think 'That looks like a good
kids movie', but at the same time it made me think 'It kind of looks
stupid...' Boy, I was wrong. Akeelah and the Bee is an inspirational
movie, and is definitely great for those who share an interest in
I went to the movies with my friends for her birthday, expecting little
about the bee at all and more about a love relationship between Akeelah
and her newfound friend, Javier. Surprisingly enough, very little of
the content was anything to do with romance, and thank goodness.
The acting, oh my goodness. It was wonderful. Especially Keke Palmer's
performance. Her face told the story, really. Facial acting was
wonderful, no doubt. Keke's performance perfectly matches up to her
being as good as young Dakota Fanning, without her having to bawl out
crying in any scenes. And the rest of the cast was great, too. The
ending is very sweet, but I certainly won't spoil it for anyone.
Overall, a very inspirational movie. 10/10
