Review January 2011

Nominated for 13 Academy Awards, The King's Speech is a surprisingly, charming period piece that examines the relationship between a stammering young prince and the Australian speech therapist hired to cure him. In much the same vane as Mrs. Brown or The Queen, The King's Speech is a British production featuring meticulous period detail, outstanding performances from Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter, and inventive staging and visuals - all of which makes this a very memorable, historical and personal drama that can't be missed.
