This amazing, Oscar-nominated documentary takes us behind the scenes of the National Spelling Bee. It's no surprise, of course, that both kids and parents treat this competition with grave seriousness. Filmmaker Jeffrey Blitz not only beautifully captures the awkward, nervous, brainy, overzealous personalities behind the words but also manages to give us some nail-biting "who will win" tension. An inspiring crowdpleaser. 97 minutes
