After seeing The Kings Speech in the theatre, I cannot wait to own it.
A remarkable piece of work...from script, to director, to photography and music,
this film is not to be missed. One doesn't have to be a Royalist, nor indeed,
a history buff, to appreciate the production.
Headed by the inimitable Colin Firth, as King George VI, (Bertie)...one is drawn into
the deep frustration of a solidly good man, adored by his wife and daughters,
who suffers from a debilitating speech impediment, which worsens as he finds
himself faced with the unexpected weight of becoming King, thrust onto his
shoulders. As an actor, Colin Firth keeps getting better and better, from Mr. Darcy
in 1999's Pride and Prejudice, to varying roles across the years, to last year's heart
wrenching, Oscar nominated role, as The Single Man.
Again,the tight facial close-ups, convey a myriad of palpable emotions, which the director
can rely on from Firth, who delivers in spades.
With a fine, talented supporting cast...The brilliant, Geoffrey Rush as King George's
dependable, speech therapist, who becomes his friend...The always amazing Helena
Bonham Carter, as Bertie's loving and supportive wife and Queen...Guy Pearce, excellent
as the self-absorbed, spoiled Edward, who changes history by tossing over the throne for
"the woman I love" and the always solid Derek Jacobi, as the Archbishop.
This is a beautifully crafted film, from the first scene to the closing credits.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 26 2011
Format: DVD
Stammering is a pretty common speech defect, and for most people it doesn't have earthshattering consequences. But for one man, it might have. "The King's Speech" chronicles the true-life story of King George VI's struggle to gain the confidence to lead his nation -- a powerful, tensely-written movie, with some truly brilliant performances.

For many years, Prince Albert (Colin Firth) dreaded any kind of public speaking because of his crippling stammer. So his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham-Carter) drags him to a speech therapist named Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), who gives him vocal and physical exercises. Logue also learns more about "Bertie's" psyche -- his sensitivity, his low self-esteem, and his fears that he will let down his country.

And Bertie has never needed help so badly -- his father is dying, his older brother David is too obsessed with his married lover to care about "kinging," and World War II is fast approaching. And when the throne is handed to Bertie, Logue must help him get through his coronation, and a vital speech announcing the beginning of the war.

"The King's Speech" takes place on two very different levels. On one hand, it's about an underappreciated prince's rise to become king just before World War II, and the events that led to it. On the other, it's about one man slowly learning to overcome his fear with the help of a friend.

Director Tom Hooper really knows to create powerful drama even from seemingly small things, and to evoke strong emotions from the simplest scenes. There are some lighter moments (the hysterical scene where Bertie runs around shouting four-letter words) and some glimpses of Bertie and Lionel's lives with their families.

This is a tour de force movie. It has a lot for everyone. There's comedy, (mild) tragedy, family relationships, and more. It shows a time that is long forgotten, but which is easy to relate to. Excellent performances by all actors.

Can't say enough good about this movie. Very enjoyable and we just loved the extras on the disc....Queen Elizabeth's father giving the real speech. Colin Firth did an excellent job as usual.

I have only clapped and stood for a ovation twice at a theater for a movie. This is one of them. Witty, funny as hell and so well acted one thinks they are the real life historical figures! Truly a classic...will watch it over and over and love it more every time.

...as you might be able to discern, it was very good. Gorgeous cinematography-wow! Awesome acting from Geoffry Rush and Colin Firth. Also, it's nice to have Helena Bonham-Carter showing off her sassy acting chips again. Anyway, if you like a good drama filled with very oscar-esque performances and fabulous accents, then this is the movie for you!
