Unexpectedly enjoyable movie with historic reference I actually loved and will watch again!
Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter are outstanding as the new King and his wife who struggle with his speech impediment and are aided by a unconventional speech therapist, portrayed by Geoffrey Rush. In the historic time period leading up to World War II England's King needed to lead with a strong voice, offering speeches to boost the spirits of his countrymen and King George VI proves he has what it takes once his voice is found!

Wonderful movie, that shows King George VI's struggle to overcome his stammer, and unite his people in the face of WWII. Everyone should see it. Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter were amazing, but then they always are.
