Movie 1: The King's Speech

2011 Movies

Title: The King's Speech
Year: 2010
Grade: 95
Date Seen: 1/2

Comments: This was completely, utterly delightful. Definitely my Best Picture choice for 2010. It's the story of George VI, who had to overcome his stammer when his brother abdicated and he became King of England. It stars Colin Firth (always great) as the king and Geoffrey Rush as his unconventional speech therapist, and the supporting cast includes Helena Bonham Carter (and it's SO nice to see her in a non-crazy role), Derek Jacobi, Michael Gambon, and Guy Pearce. Set during the run-up to World War II, it manages to be serious and heart-warming all at once. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Go see it!
