The 2006 drama Akeelah and the Bee follows title character Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer), an 11-year-old girl from South Los Angeles, who advances to the Scripps National Spelling Bee with the help of her English teacher Dr. Larabee (Laurence Fishburne) and initially reluctant mother Tanya (Angela Bassett). Director Doug Atchison received the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship for the film, which (trivia alert) is the only movie ever produced by Starbucks (F-R-A-P-P-U-C-C-I-N-O).
