Summary Spellbound is an award-winning documentary that presents the intense, real-life experience of the National Spelling Bee as illustrated by the stories of eight driven, young spellers who compete for the top prize. Through the keenly observant and humane vision of director Jeff Blitz and producer Sean Welch, the audience shares the private lives of the students as they train for and compete in the ultimate intellectual showdown, discovering their individual personalities, their obsessive study habits, and their sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes inspiring family dynamics. Spellbound follows the dramatic journey of eight anxious, yet courageous, young competitors as they wrestle with the impossibly difficult words and enormously big dreams that define the National Spelling Bee. (From the US, in English) (2002).
