The King’s Speech

Behind the scenes of the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII so he could marry his paramour, twice-divorced American Wallis Simpson, played a much more compelling drama of courage and honor starring his brother, Prince Albert, Duke of York, known to friends and family as Bertie (Colin Firth). Bertie began stuttering as a toddler. As his royal duties grew to include public speaking, his own embarrassment as he haltingly addressed crowds was shared by those around him. After seeing various doctors, Bertie’s wife (Helena Bonham Carter) finds a rather unconventional speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), who helps Bertie confront his childhood traumas, vent his anger and face his fears so he can control his stammer.

Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush superbly portray an intimate, unprecedented relationship between royal Bertie and commoner Lionel. They expose weaknesses and strengths of both characters with passion, humor and talent worthy of the Royal Court. Much more than just a period drama based on a bit of English history, this is a brilliant film of true personal triumph that will touch your heart. (Mary Nyiri)
