If u read my last post about the Oscars ( read the post here ) yo won't need an introduction to see this great one. Because its the best movie of 2010!!!!!won at the Oscars. With an imdb rating of 8.4/10 it's been a remarkable movie since its first show.If royalty is good for nothing else, it’s certainly good for making films. is no exception and cements Colin Firth’s reputationas one of Britain’s best actors but more than that, it’s is a superbly written historical tour de force, a moving personal story set against the background of a country undergoing dramatic change.
It tells the story of Prince Albert (Bertie to his nearest and dearest), the second son of King George V, who suffers from a devastating speech impediment which makes his public duties as a prince next to impossible. After a succession of ineffective treatments from a score of physicians, his wife turns in desperation to an unorthodox Australian therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). After a bumpy start, Bertie begins to make some progress but when his father dies and his brother Edward (Guy Pearce) abdicates in order to marry Wallis Simpson, he’s faced with the prospect of becoming King and with the storm clouds of war looming on the horizon, it will be up to him to deliver a crucial speech to the nation.
The King’s Speech is not merely stuffy historical drama, it’s frequently very funny. Many of Logue’s techniques involve overstepping the boundaries of protocol and this leads to some amusing conflicts with His Royal Highness, a particular swearing scene is destined to become a classic. Helena Bonham Carter also gets to exhibit the pin-sharp wit that the Queen Mum was known for on more than one occasion, something which might be surprising to those who remember her only as an old woman.
That aside, The King’s Speech is nothing short of a triumph, a magnificent historical drama but also a powerfully personal one; a
film about the difficulties of communication which is itself acutely perceptive and will, by turns, leave you speechless.
