This film is highly recommended.
The leads played by Keke Palmer, Akeelah, and J R Villarreal, Javier, are brilliantly portrayed by these young actors, their enthusiasm in their roles is infectious and vibrant. The birthday party scene was a delight.
Keke Palmer understood her role so well and clearly had a collaborative relationship with the Director Doug Atchison.
From the film: “Overcoming the fear of being great before you can be great.”
