Movie Info

Based on a true story, Disney's The Girl Who Spelled Freedom is a made-for-television film about a teen-aged Cambodian refugee who arrives in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1979. As she adjusts to American culture, the girl becomes an excellent speller and, a mere four years after she arrived in the US, she competes in and wins a national spelling bee. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
