Come watch Akeelah and the Bee! (A)
"Akeelah and the Bee" is all about this girl name Akeelah who is an amazing speller! She can spell almost anything you can say! Anyway, there are a lot of main characters in this movie. And they are, of course Akeelah, Kiannah (Akeelah’s sister), Mr.Whelch (Akeelah’s principal) Akeelah’s mom, Akeelahs two brothers, Dylan (one of Akeelah’s competition), Javier (Akeelah’s friend/ competition), Georgia (Akeelah’s friend), professor Larabbie (helps Akeelah spell), and mostly the whole neighborhood who helps her practice. This takes place in a whole bunch of places like, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. Most people would say “all over the world.” I liked the movie "Akeelah and the Bee." It is the most inspiring movie ever!
To start with (like I said before) it inspired me. For example, she wanted to quit spelling at one part of the movie but she stuck with it, and she did great in the spelling bee. When she was in her first spelling bee at her school, she won. But after they said she won this guy, Professor Larabbie, who was watching her (he coaches her later on in the movie) asked her to spell more words. She got most of them right except for one and everyone started laughing at her. She wanted to quit and she didn’t. So that inspired me a lot!
In addition, you should also watch this movie because it gets you asking questions like is Akeelah going to win? What is going to happen next? Or something like is that true?! Or you will gasp at something like, "I can’t believe that just happened!" Or "Will they both win?" Or something else like, "I hope she wins! I really hopes she wins!" I was nervous when Akeelah went up to spell a word. I kept hoping that she would win!
And lastly, it really got you in to it. I had my eyes glued to that screen. And I saw everyone in my class looking at the screen. I even think my teacher did even though it was like his 4th time seeing it. I really liked it. And even when she won something, I and my whole class started cheering and clapping!
So if you want to go see a movie that is inspiring, and gets you asking questions, and has your eyed glued to the screen, go see "Akeelah and the Bee"!
