THE KING’S SPEECH
2010, The Weinstein Company, 118 min, Dir: Tom Hooper

Colin Firth stars as King George V, the reluctant and severely stuttering monarch faced with the challenge of bringing guidance and hope to pre-World War II Britain. When George enlists the help of an eccentric and unconventional speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush), he must confront his own stubbornness, pride and fear of failure, as well as the looming likelihood of war against a very well-spoken opponent: Hitler. An amazingly intimate portrait of the burden of being king. With Helena Bonham Carter.
