Becky and I went to see the new film, The King’s Speech this week at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Rach, CO. The MovieFone website at The King’s Speech describes the movie as follows:
“After the death of his father King George V (Michael Gambon) and the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII (Guy Pearce), Bertie (Colin Firth) 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 (Helena Bonham Carter), the future Queen Mother, arranges for her husband to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). After a rough 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 (Timothy Spall), the King will overcome his stammer and deliver a radio-address that inspires his people and unites them in battle.
Based on the true story of King George VI, ‘The King’s Speech’ follows the Royal Monarch’s quest to find his voice…”
The King’s Speech is going to be a classic film for sure and probably win a number of awards this year. It’s extremely well done with fantastic acting and a great true story about the King of England and his two sons who are heirs to his throne.
The story is really amazing. The Duke of York, who is the second born son of the King has a speech problem and cannot speak publicly, or even privately for that matter, without stuttering. The Duke’s wife seeks out a speech therapist to help her husband with his speech problem and she finds a common man who is an expert in his profession, played by Geoffrey Rush. The chemistry between the two characters is great.
The language is rough at times, but it’s appropriate for the situation. The King’s Speech is very entertaining and we really enjoyed it.
