The King's Speech DVD|
The Kings Speech was winner of the 2011 Academy Awards for; Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay and BAFTAs for Best Film, Best British Film, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Music.
The film, based on a true story, is set in the years between 1925 and 1939 and tells the remarkable tale of the stammering King George VI (Colin Firth) as he very reluctantly takes up the throne after the abdication of his brother Edward VIII (Guy Pearce) in 1936. Following Edward VIII's affair and subsequent marriage to American Wallis Simpson, Bertie is forced into the public eye. Spurred on by the tireless determination and support of his wife Queen Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), he enlists the services of unorthodox Australian therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) to help him overcome his speech impediment and enable him to perform his public speaking tasks. With radio taking off as a new phenomenon in communication the new King's speeches will inevitably reach a much wider audience than ever encountered in the past.
The behind-the-scenes personal friendship that develops between the reluctant King and his derisive, unconventional speech therapist is central to the story. With the Second World War looming, and the international spotlight upon him, will he be able to develop the vocal dexterity required in time to motivate a whole nation?
