Big words for little kids
EIGHT bright American youngsters desperate to win the title of National Spelling Bee.
From the plains of Texas to the manicured lawns of Connecticut and the redneck Ozark countryside – don’t be lulled into underestimating them because of the drawl – it’s a mixed bunch of teens who will sweat it out to win the ultimate spelling title.
Director Jeff Blitz takes us into the private lives of the competitors who juggle school work, home chores and family life to tirelessly train for the competition.
The award- winning documentary has claimed more than 15 accolades at film festivals throughout North America and we can see why: the film is heartfelt, inspiring and beautiful to watch.
