Movie: The King's Speech (2010)

It takes leadership to confront a nation's fear. It takes friendship to conquer your own.

The King's Speech (2010) is a British historical movie about how the man who became King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II, overcame his stuttering problem

This movie is a major success and universally acclaimed, winning four Oscars, all in major categories: Best Picture, Best Director for Tom Hooper, Best Actor for Colin Firth, and Best Original Screenplay for David Seidler.

Synopsis: After the death of King George V (Michael Gambon), Prince Edward (Guy Pearce) abdicates, causing Prince Albert ('Bertie') (Colin Firth), the Duke of York to reluctantly assume the throne. 'Bertie' stammers and stutters since young. Seeing that leadership in the age of the wireless requires the ability to communicate clearly, Bertie and his wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) engage the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) to overcome the problem. Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, 'Bertie' is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country through war.

Here are some of the good comments from movie critics around the globe. I've to agree with them. This movie is indeed an excellent production.

"As the actor of the year in the film of the year, I can't think of enough adjectives to praise Firth properly. The King's Speech has left me speechless."

"Colin Firth gives a masterful performance in The King's Speech, a predictable but stylishly produced and rousing period drama."

"With their volume turned up, the appealing, impeccably professional Mr. Firth and Mr. Rush rise to the acting occasion by twinkling and growling as their characters warily circle each other before settling into the therapeutic swing of things and unknowingly preparing for the big speech that partly gives the film its title."

I'm sure most of us movie lovers have heard and read about this movie's huge success. If you haven't watched it, you really should get a copy of the DVD. The King's Speech will leave you speechless, and that's a promise, for the next two hours of your life. :)
