THE KING’S SPEECH

Director: Tom Hooper

UK/Australia, 2010, Drama, 118 min


A wonderful addition to the Leaving Certificate Comparative Study and based on the true story of King George VI (Bertie) who reluctantly assumed the throne after his brother abdicated. Although next in line, Bertie is considered unfit to be king because of a dreaded stutter. His wife Elizabeth engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue. Through a set of unexpected techniques, Bertie, brilliantly played by Colin Firth, is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country through war.
