Precious movie. One of the BEST that I've seen in a very long time.

A very heartfelt film with an excellent performance by Lawrence Fishburne whilst Keke Palmer was very watchable as young Akeelah, who pursues her dream of competing in the national Spelling Bee! It was funny, heartbreaking and uplifting.
