3SMReviews: Akeelah and the Bee
This was one of those take-your-vitamins movie in that I brought it home from the library and so I felt the need to actually watch it. It was one of the best movies I have seen all year with very good messages about hard work and fear of your dreams and the power of community. I especially enjoyed the twist at the end which I saw coming, but which played out in unexpected ways.
