Tiles And Tribulations On The Scrabble Game Circuit

In this acclaimed 2004 Sundance Festival hit, filmmakers Eric Chaikin and Julian Petrillo follow four top SCRABBLE® players as they advance to the North American Championship: Matt Graham is an intense stand-up comic who consumes massive amounts of 'brain function' pills; 'G.I.' Joel Sherman is a dyspeptic competitor (the 'G.I.' stand for 'gastro-intestinal') whose entire life revolves around the game; Marlon Hill is an angry Black militant who believes SCRABBLE® is a colonialist conspiracy; and Joe Edley is a husband and father who's used a strange Zen strategy to become three-time champion. From professional hustlers in a New York City park to the 700+ player National Finals in San Diego, these are the rivalries, controversies and bizarre obsessions that turn a board game into a battlefield where fate unfolds one tile at a time.
