With an impressive four Oscars, another 43 wins and 89 nominations, it is no wonder I advise watching The King's Speech (if you haven't already done so!).
With fantastic performances from Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham, The King's Speech is the story of King George VI of Britain, and his unprepared ascension to the throne. Written by David Seidler and directed by Tom Hooper, the film is pleasurable throughout, and instantly absorbing.
The King's Speech is a true-life drama about the morganatic relationship between reserved stutterer King George VI and his speech therapist Lionel Logue. With Firth playing the miserable monarch, Rush the charming speech coach and Bonham the Queen, this fascinating and brilliant story grips you instantaneously.
Making matters better, it is such a nice feeling to see British film at its very best.
