About Akeelah and the Bee
eleven year old girl from impoverished
South Los Angeles
discovers her gift for spelling. Despite
her mother’s (Angela Bassett) reservations, Akeelah (Keke Palmer) enters a
local spelling bee. Akeelah is
tutored along the way by the eccentric yet plainspoken teacher Dr. Larabee
(Laurence Fishburne); her school principal Mr. Welch (Curtis Armstrong) and
various neighbors. Akeelah’s
amazing gift takes her all the way to the National Spelling Bee, uniting and
inspiring her community with her determination and courage.
This film also features Dalia Phillips as Ms. Cross.
