Spellbound

As enthralling as any fiction, this documentry follows eight children, drawn from every corner of the US, through the preparations for, and then the agonies and ecstasies of, a knock-out spelling bee in Washington DC. Although the mood is cheery, this is, in the end, a competition with only one winner.
