1. Akeelah and the Bee

What makes Akeelah special is that it doesn't "play down" to anyone. Although the young heroine is from an impoverished family, each character is lovingly drawn and offered a chance at a small moment of redemption. A week after seeing it, my 11-year-old son suddenly said, "I liked that Akeelah movie!" The story of one girl having the courage to become her best self is one that sticks with you.
