Synopsis

Moving drama based on the novel by Myla Goldberg. 11-year-old Eliza Naumann (Flora Cross) comes from an odd family; they all divert their emotional frustrations into secret channels. When Eliza unexpectedly begins winning spelling bees, what had been a stable dynamic within the family becomes disrupted; long held secrets emerge, and a latent spiritual yearning is awakened in her withdrawn father Saul (Richard Gere) and compulsive mother Miriam (Juliette Binoche). As Eliza moves closer and closer to the national spelling bee, the Naumann family finds itself in a spiral of surprising discovery and jarring uncertainty.
