News & Interviews for Spellbound
Critic Reviews for Spellbound
Spellbound is not a great piece of filmmaking, but it is more entertaining than you might expect from a story whose heroes are all brainiacs.
Spellbound finds its thrills with nary a chase scene nor a quick cut; it's a simple and utterly gripping story about kids, words and a microphone.
When a child stands at the microphone and frantically writes invisible letters on her hand, we can't help but love each and every one of these people.
A genuinely charming and often funny documentary about the high-pressured world of competitive spelling.
Whatever else it may be, this is also a film about being young, hopeful and focused.
Audience Reviews for Spellbound
im glad i only won the school spelling bee and not the regionals because i would probably be one of the hopeless nerds on this dvd
The hardships and stifes of the American Spelling Bee contestant are exemplified in this grueling documentary chronicling the climb and competitive drive of some of America's most intelligent and note worthy spellers ever.
A good watch. Most of the kids involved are fun to learn about except for the one who talks a hundred miles an hour and has to be one of the most annoying kids in the world. Well made and really gets you into the hype.
