This movie shows a little of what Akeelah's life would be like in CA. The producers kept it clean except for 2-3 minor curse words. This shows a little girl with a lot of determination, and many people supporting her on her journey.

"Phenomenal movie! My 7 year old loves it and it has inspired her to spell words like pulchritude and terradactyl. Even if they don't become great spellers, this movie is still a winner!"
