The Kings Speech

The Kings Speech
Now after seeing Colin Firth win all the awards for Best Actor i went into this movie with high hopes, and thankfully was not disappointed, he was amazing in it. For those of you who dont no its about King George VI . Now king George has a bit of a problem, hes got a terrible speech impediment. So the majority of the movie is him learning to speak... along with dealing with childhood trauma, living up to his fathers image and not wanting to be king..... OH and world war bloody 2 . The movie is wonderfully directed and Wonderfully acted, both Firth and Helena Bonham Carter shine as the king and queen respectively. Now i know many people might stray away from this kinda period piece, BUT as many of this things do, theirs alot of morals and the like (couple of funny parts mixed in to). Making this a heartfelt engaging movie. and Spoilers if ur not smiling big at the final speech, then u have no soul. The downsides being that its a bit slow at timees, and i couldn't tell that Geoffrey Rush was Australian (probably why he had to keep reminding us). On a personal note i believe that the movie taking place in England and me being English added to the factor of me liking it, any movie taking place in are finest hour gets me going.
OVERALL    7.5 OUT OF 10

  2. I want to see this movie so badly! My girlfriend watched it at uni and thought it was amazing. I have relatives who work in speech pathology so it would be cool to discuss it all with therm, too...
