  • There is plenty to like about "Spelling the Dream," an affecting documentary with admirable ambitions. But it tries to be a sports movie, a multicharacter study, a work of sociological inquiry and a history piece all in the span of 82 minutes.

  • Rega's slickly made film strives to cover a wealth of topics, not just the question of Indian American bee domination, but also wider myths about immigrants and even a heart-pounding race to the conclusion of the 2017 Scripps competition.

  • It's not just an impressive display of linguistics but also a reminder of what American success is and should be perceived as, a reminder that many, sadly, still need to be made aware of.

  • You want to root for these kids, and cherish the way they advocate for intellect at such a young age. It's just that the whole project has the unabashed tact of a glorified infomercial.

  • Some of the analysis seems dead on... Spelling the Dream is not all about camera-wary kids not looking into the lens, though there's a fair amount of that

  • If you're browsing for feel-good stories of American diversity nowadays, there is nothing more inoffensively comforting than Netflix's new documentary "Spelling the Dream."
