The King's Speech

This is definitely one of the year's best movies. It is an inspiring look at a slice of recent British history.

Colin Firth delivers an extraordinary performance as the second son of King George V. After his older, more outgoing brother abdicates, he becomes England's wartime king. With the help of a speech therapist brilliantly  played by Geoffrey Rush, Albert (King George VI) overcomes a stuttering problem and delivers an unforgettable 9-minute speech.

The film traces the development of an unlikely friendship between two men from different social classes and countries.

Watch the trailer.
