Product Description

Product Description

The King’s Speech is the tale of Elizabeth II's father and his remarkable friendship with maverick speech therapist Lionel Logue. Fascinating, moving and often humourous it charts the personal relationship that developed between England's reluctant King George VI, plagued by a nervous stammer, and his irreverent Australian speech therapist.

As the second son of George V, Prince Albert "Bertie" was not expected to ascend to the throne, but when his brother Edward abdicates to marry American Wallis Simpson, Bertie, as his successor, is crowned King George VI.

George becomes King as radio is taking off as a mass medium and the Second World War looms. Thrust into the international spotlight he must speak not only to the nation but to the people of the British Empire, across the world. His wife, Queen Elizabeth - the future Queen Mother - is tireless in her belief in him. Having tried all the traditional doctors she engages unorthodox outsider, Logue, to help him find a voice that can inspire a nation on the brink of war.

Stills from The King’s Speech (Click for larger images)


Emmy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (THE DAMNED UNITED) teams with screenwriter David Seidler (TUCKER: THE MAN AND HIS DREAM) to tell the story of King George VI. When his older brother abdicates the throne, nervous-mannered successor George Bertie VI (Colin Firth) reluctantly dons the crown. Though his stutter soon raises concerns about his leadership skills, King George VI eventually comes into his own with the help of unconventional speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Before long the king and Lionel have forged an unlikely bond, a bond that proves to have real strength when the United Kingdom is forced to flex its international might. --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Format: DVD
I was lucky enough to see this wonderful film at the Bath Film Festival, having dragged two friends along as well. We all agreed it is the best film we have seen for ages.
A film for adults (and a 12 year old can be an adult), no cameras tricks/ CGI/ gory scenes, a simple story of two remarkable men, one of whom just happened to become the King of England - by accident. There are inaccuracies (Churchill was not a friend of George VI until after he became PM) and some scenes which do not ring quite true - the two men arguing in the park for example - but colin Firth is simply marvellous, as is Geoffrey Rush (and indeed, all of the stellar cast).
See it and laugh with, and weep for, a man pushed into a position he did not want, with a crippling handicap to overcome, but who became in the words of many, an ordinary hero.

This film is notable for a number of reasons. Some of them are wholly predictable, other less so. So, let's start with the things one might expect. First, the quality of the cast is beyond reproach. Colin Firth is quite startlingly good as the shy, diffident and afflicted future King. Rush is avuncular and authoritative, while the supporting cast are pitch perfect. The delectable Helena Bonham-Carter puts more flesh on the young Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, and future Queen Mother, than even this high quality script might have allowed, while the brief appearance of Michael Gambon is a nice study in both Saturnine severity and pitiful confusion as George V nears his end. For me, however, the cream of the supporting cast is Guy Pearce's portrayal of the Duke of Windsor. David is shown as essentially complacent and, beneath it all, weaker than his poor, derided brother. Pearce nails the clipped frustration and the arrogant languor perfectly.

So far, so good. Where this film scores even better, however, is in the rather more playfully unpredictable script and the way the performers inhabit it. At first sight, this may appear to be nothing more than a rather dry period piece, but what stands out when you watch it is just how FUNNY it is. Yes, you heard right: funny. When I first saw this at the cinema I laughed out loud more loudly and more often than I have at many comedy films. The whole thing careers along at a lively pace, held together with this quick-witted and coruscating wit. Possibly my favourite moment of the whole film comes when Lionel Logue's wife arrives home early from playing bridge to find some rather unexpected visitors to her home. It's a beautiful little pen painting of the awkwardness of the class system of the time, and beautifully judged by all.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Although it is surprising that it turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, it's no great surprise that The King's Speech was a hit: it's a terrific audience picture. It may follow an established template - its double-act between the impaired monarch and the pomposity-puncturing commoner who treats him as much with common sense and emotional as much as mechanical therapy is basically The Mad Speech Impediment of King George with a happier ending - but the script is a perfect crowdpleaser that hits all the right emotional and comic beats and is blessed with terrific performances from an impressive cast of players who haven't always been as well cast as they might in past films. The almost trademark constipated style that often works against Colin Firth in his more conventional leading roles is absolutely perfect here while Helena Bonham-Carter, who can switch onto autopilot petulant mode in some roles, is absolutely delightful here with a wonderful sense of comic timing. Geoffrey Rush isn't exactly stretching himself here as the therapist, the part plays so well to his strengths and his own comic touch that that turns out to be an advantage while Guy Pearce makes a convincingly dismissive and occasionally vindictive Edward and Michael Gambon impresses as the ailing monarch despite his limited screen time. Only Timothy Spall's Winston Churchill seems a bit of an uninspired miscast.

Director Tom Hopper is better with actors than he is with lenses, the look of the film that uninvitingly flat and lifeless look so beloved of modern period pieces that seem to believe that the past was devoid of primary colors, but since this is a performance and script-led piece that's not the handicap it could have been.

Format: DVD
Went to watch this as it was getting a lot of Award Season Buzz.
Found that it deserves all the praise that it is getting.
For this is truly a Brilliant Movie in every department.
Story, Acting, Direction and Production Values.
The story is very engaging right from the first scene.
It is then told in a brisk pace and laced with Wonderful Humour.
The Acting is terrific. And Award nominations are sure to follow
Colin Firth is just exceptional, and in his scenes in Public with his Stammer or excruciating to watch as any horror movie.
Geoffery Rush matches him step for step as the unorthodox Therapist. Helen Bonham Carter is good in a small role.
Guy Pearce, and Timothy Spall act their parts well.
Overall a Very Entertaining True Story
