Bad VHS style film stock aside, this is a fascinating documentary, and one I highly recommend. All the children are given a fair amount of coverage, and best of all there is a strong narrative that structures the film.

Not only is this an interesting documentary about childlike drive and ambition, but it is thoroughly and endlessly entertaining. You wouldn't think a spelling bee could be exciting and funny, but this documentary is all that and more.

One of the finest Documentaries ever made. Its twee yes, but once the introductions are over and the spelling bee begins, it becomes as exciting and tense as any thriller. Watch it and be suprised.
