Spellbound on DVD
Sorry, this product is no longer available to order


Jeff Blitz's Academy-Award nominated documentary is an affecting, inspiring look at eight American children as they make their way to the 1999 National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C.

Defying all stereotypes and categorisations, the spellers that Blitz chooses to focus on run the ethnic and socio-economic gamut. It offers equal doses of humour, heartbreak, drama and nail-biting tension to create edge-of-your-seat filmmaking.

The National Spelling Bee is a competition, and the spellers, a rare breed of intellectual athlete, are trained to compete. Yet the Bee does not have a cutthroat, survival-of-the-fittest, atmosphere. SPELLBOUND illustrates the wonderful strength and resiliency of the spellers.

Win or lose, they are victorious in the end because the skills they have learned will be theirs forever.
