Akeelah and the Bee Movie Summary:
This inspiring drama centers around an 11-year-old African-American girl named Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer) who attends an inner-city middle school in South Los Angeles. Akeelah's widowed mom (Angela Bassett) doesn't push her, and the girl mostly just tries to blend in at school. But staff and faculty recognize Akeelah is good at spelling and urge her to enter the school's bee. Then the strict Dr. Larabee (Laurence Fishburne) becomes her coach, and she gets a shot at the national championship in Washington, D.C.
