Akeelah and the Bee

At first glance, it would appear that the title could be animation for children. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the film. I would actually go as far as stating that it could very well be the one of the best flicks of the year. Certainly a 'feel good' story, but actually there was much to captivate the audience. It appears that Lawrence Fishbourne is going to use his new film production group to capture the positive experiences of persons of color. Definitely a much needed breath of fresh air. Outside of 40Acres and a Mule, there really aren't very many production houses that are seeking to be different.

Don't know about you, but most films depicting the so-called black experience on the silver screen have been bitter disappointments. It's either a wack love story or goofball comedy. Not much diversity at all. Sorta of like mainstream radio, but that's a rant for a later entry.

Suffice to say, that you'd be pleased to drop a bit of loot on this flick. This one snuck in under my radar screen, much like Boondocks ;)

Go catch the matinee.
