a deeply moving story,
This review is from: The King's Speech: Based on the Recently Discovered Diaries of Lionel Logue (Paperback)
This is a very moving story. Much has already been written about it and BAFTAS and Oscars awarded. There seems to be a lot of speculation about book v film. The 2 formats are very different. A typical film is 90 min long, many books contain much more written material than can fit into 90 min, so naturally a lot of detail needs to be cut out. But film on the other hand has the beauty of visualising and creating a unique interpretation. Each deserves its rightful place under the sun. That's why it is so enjoyable to go through both the book and film. I thoroughly enjoyed both and would highly recommend. Colin's performance is very realistic in the film.
