Overview

The King's Speech is an incredible story -- all true. King George VI (Colin Firth) -- father of the current queen, Elizabeth -- is a shy man who suffers from an acute stutter. When he unexpectedly ascends the throne of England in 1936, he must rally his nation over the radio through the Depression and Second World War. His wife, Queen Mother Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), convinces him to employ a speech coach (Geoffrey Rush), whose wisdom and slightly unorthodox ways work wonders in the royal household.

The luxurious film score is by Alexander Desplat (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Painted Veil, The Queen, Twilight: New Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). -- From the Label
