The King’s Speech

Director: Tom Hooper

UK/USA/Australia, 2010, Drama/History, 118 mins


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 plagued by a dreaded stutter and considered unfit to be king, so his wife Elizabeth engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue. Through a set of unexpected techniques, the reluctant king (wonderfully played by Colin Firth) is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country through war.
