Description

    Following the death of his father King George V and the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII. Bertie, who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of England. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife Elizabeth, the future Queen Mother, arranges for her husband to see an eccentric speech therapist Lionel Logue. After a rocky start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of treatment and eventually form an unbreakable bond. With the support of Logue, his family, his government and Winston Churchill, the King will overcome his stammer and deliver a radioaddress that inspires his people and unites them in battle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good "speech"... Directed by Tom Hooper ("Les Miserables") and starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham-Carter; this is a very good if polite analysis film about the tenacity of the heir to the British throne who must overcome a significant speech impediment to ascend to the throne. Based on true events and starring Australian Rush in a considerable role, "The King's Speech" received 4 Academy awards including "Best Picture", this is a solid, handsome production. Exemplary and polished with Colin Firth at the top of his game.
