Overview

The King's Speech

Emmy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (John Adams) teams with screenwriter David Seidler (Tucker: A Man and His Dreams) to tell the story of King George VI. When his older brother abdicates the throne, nervous-mannered successor George "Bertie" VI (Colin Firth) reluctantly dons the crown. Though his stutter soon raises concerns about his leadership skills, King George VI eventually comes into his own with the help of unconventional speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Before long the king and Lionel have forged an unlikely bond, a bond that proves to have real strength when the United Kingdom is forced to flex its international might.

British drama at its best! The movie weaves through history and stiff upper-lipped British humor that is hilarious and moving at the same time. No frills, no fancy stuff, just the story delivered in perfection, The King's Speech is a 'must watch'. The actors are all impeccable and direction is simply beautiful.

The cast is stellar, and the acting is superb, with some of Britain's finest thespians represented here. You can feel King George's frustration and anguish throughout this masterfully-crafted film. The moment I started watching it, I knew it was the best picture of the year, I love history, and this is a timeless story of power being thrust upon someone who felt ill-equipped to meet the task. Colin Firth acts through subtle mannerisms, and as always, delivers a wonderful performance. Geoffrey Rush should have received the Supporting Actor Oscar, since his portrayal was wonderfully poignant and exciting to watch. The background scenes are wonderful to enjoy and add the finishing touches to an intelligent, refined and profound film about how we all have something to overcome, and we should all be so fortunate as to have a true and caring friend as "Bertie" had. THIS is how movies should look and sound. Incredible!

This movie takes you into King George's life of pain so completely. The work he must do is amazing to let his voice be heard and run his country. An inspirational film with strong love and dedication, friendship that we all pray to have. A must see movie. You get lost in the characters completely. Should have won more awards...

At first look, certain people might think this film to be kind of boring, but really it isn't. Speaking from a film watcher who isn't always that keen on too awful many dramas, I actually enjoyed this one. I also rather like stuff with historical background too, based on true stories, like this one is. I really like the majority of these actors too, and they all did a superb job at their roles. If you want to watch a rather good drama based on true events, this is a really good one. I recommend checking it out. Listed in this are other dramas I have seen that I really like.

This movie is fantastic. Saw it in the theatre after the Oscars. Even after several months, at the end of the movie, people were spontaneously clapping. It deserved every award it received. The actors were outstanding. I will definitely be adding this to my movie collection.
