The King's Speech
The King's Speech lived up to the hype, it was a wonderful story excellently portrayed by all. Firth's handling of the King's stammer was amazing and I could feel his pain in every shot. The rather gray London motif worked for the serious tone, but Rush added lots of humour. Who needs boring history books when we have fabulous historical films like this. Even though this retelling (like other historical films) may not be 100% accurate, it paints a very clear picture of an important part of our history and with The King's Speech, I've learned a new deep respect for King George VI. 4/5.
