Moving, powerful and inspiring doc!

I recently watched SPEAK and loved it! It is an amazing story of quirky, flawed and inspiring people, who compete for the championships of public speaking. Their journey is captivating. I laughed out loud, cheered and cried as they struggled to achieve their dreams. The characters each have a strength and drive that makes you want to root for them. But as their story unfolds, so does their flaws...which not only make them complex and fascinating but leaves you questioning if you really want them to win.

The Directors do an amazing job of keeping you on the edge of your seat!

If you are scared to speak in public, this film will inspire and teach you to find your own voice. It is a story of hope and redemption and leaves you asking yourself...are you living your best life? would highly recommend it!!! A Must See!!
