Product description

Product Description

Washington DC. In a packed auditorium, you can cut the atmosphere with a knife. On the edge of their seats, a hushed audience watches and waits as a fiercely contested battle unfolds before them. Welcome to the National Spelling Bee. As American as apple pie, as competitive as the Olympics, the Spelling Bee pits kid against kid in a war of words … with only one winner. Following the fortunes of eight title hopefuls and their families, Spellbound is packed with priceless moments of comedy and drama – as touching as it’s tense, it’s a roller coaster ride through every emotion … from A to Z.

From Amazon.co.uk

Who would have thought that a documentary about US spelling bee contestants could be as suspense-filled as a Hitchcock thriller? Spellbound, which follows eight children from their early victories in regional spelling bees to the national competition in Washington DC, is an out-and-out nail-biter. The children range from a quietly driven African-American girl from a run-down DC neighbourhood, to a genial Connecticut girl who talks about bringing her au pair to a previous competition, to an almost zombie-like boy whose immigrant father has paid 1,000 people back in India to pray for the boy's success--gets captured so vividly that you can't help but get emotionally immersed in their brave, nerve-wracking struggle to spell slippery, treacherous words. Along the way, Spellbound contrasts the crazily different populations that make up the USA and shows how this facet of intelligence truly makes everyone equal on the podium. This is a riveting, wrenching, must-see movie.--Bret Fetzer
