The new documentary Spelling the Dream – A Netflix Original follows four students as they vie for the top prize at the National Spelling Bee. One of them, Tejas Muthusamy, is a student of local Mensan Deb Gribben, and she had the honor of accompanying him all four years that he qualified for the annual National Spelling Bee event, held in Washington, D.C.
Both she and Tejas are featured in this family friendly movie, which was filmed three years ago when Tejas was an eighth grader and in his final year of eligibility. Director Sam Rega wonderfully captured the hard work and dedication that these students and their families put into the “sport of spelling,” as well as the tension and stress of participating on stage!
