A charming, personal period drama, The King’s Speech follows England’ King George VI played by Colin Firth, as he struggles to get over a stuttering problem with the help of a speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush) in 1936. A scene in which George attempts to address a public crowd is heartbreaking as he gets caught on the consonants. Helena Bonham Carter sparkles as his wife (the future Queen Mum), a remarkable performance from one of the most under-rated actresses of our time. She played an impeccable Queen Mum.
The King’s Speech kept me involved and almost had me wanting to talk for him. Colin Firth has made his place in Cinema history with this role and his role in the film The Single Man.
