On the E-D-G-E of your S-E-A-T
Now I've seen everything. There's a new documentary called Spellbound, about a nationwide spelling bee. It's gotten a rave review from Slate, and the description of it sounds so moving and suspenseful I don't know if I could bear to watch it. It takes a skilled director to turn this topic into a "heartbreaking thriller, " and Jeff Blitz apparently has what it takes. Has anyone out there seen it?
