I was privileged to watch a wonderful movie by the name of "Spellbound." (not the 1945 Hitchcock thriller starring Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman, but the 2002 documentary about the National Spelling Bee).

I had heard a lot of good things about the movie, but I was not prepared for how moving and touching and enlightening this movie truly is. It's about more than grade school kids competing for a trophy, it speaks volumes about America, about competition, about family, about class and about the contributions of immigrants to this country, among many other things.

If you have not seen this movie, run out to your local Blockbuster or put this movie at the top of your Netflix list.
