The Kings Speech

Colin Firth in The Kings Speech
Monday January 3rd, 2011

"The King's Speech" is excellent historical drama. Colin Firth should get a second consecutive Oscar nomination for his work as the tongue-tied Duke of York who reluctantly seeks out the services of an Australian speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush) because his love struck older brother, Edward, (Guy Pearce of LA Confidential) has fallen in love with a divorced American rendering him unsuitable material for a King of England.Helena Bonham Carter gives excellent support as the Duke's wife.
