Akeelah & The Bee (2006) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Sports Movie)

If you are familiar with the game of Spelling Bee, then you will surely love this probably the one and only elaborate film made on the subject which deserves to be seen by the whole family especially the youngsters. And in case, you are not aware of the game or contest, then it will be even more informative and entertaining for you since it is surely one of those brilliant concepts formed for the kids, combining both the elements of fun and education together.

The film revolves around a small town girl who wins a big reputed championship and that also by not offending her opponents at the competition, which is rarely seen in such tense events. T
he director beautifully explains what team spirit and sportsmanship should mean to the players of any age and background. He also stresses on the student teacher relationship which should have both freedom and discipline in just the right percentages. The screenplay is tight enough to get you involved after 10 minutes of watching it and you simply keep enjoying the movie asking for more in the end.

Another merit of this must watch flick is the sensitive topic of racism, beautifully tackled in its screenplay in the most subtle manner. The entire star-cast is a real treat to watch, lead by Laurence Fishburne as the teacher. In short, AKEELAH AND THE BEE is one of those few inspirational works, which can and should be shown in schools to boost up the confidence and spirit among the young ones. A pure delight to watch, its an entertaining film for all ages with some valuable lessons of life for the younger generation. Highly Recommended.
Directed By Doug Atchison
