Again Colin Firth has not disappointed me with this stellar role of the British king George the VI. Not to forget the other splendid interpretation of the Australian actor Geoffrey Rush, playing the role of the speech therapist and best friend of the king : Lionel Logue. I specially like the relationship between the 2 and the peculiar techniques Lionel use to assist the king to lose his fear and talk without stuttering. Even though you may not be into British history, I'm sure you will like this moving story based on true facts! How can someone be a king or even a politician being a stutter? Can people believe in your abilities if you are not able to be a good speaker in public? Can this be overcome? I do hope Colin and Geoffrey get an Oscar for their interpretations!!! The magic of the cinema bringing true historic stories closer to other generations!
ah! no need to say , try to see this film in its original version!!
Next movies on my list: Hereafter, Biutiful and Black Swan!
