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.
