The King's Speech – a MUST-SEE film we all need to support!

The much-touted film, The King's Speech, starring the multi-talented Collin Firth, supported by the equally superb Helena Bonham-Carter, opened in limited release in Los Angeles and New York this week.

The film tells us about the story of King George VI of Great Britain, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it.

One review tells us that this film: "Tells the story of the man who became King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. After his brother abdicates, George ('Bertie') reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded stutter and considered unfit to be king, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue. Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country through war."

The film is being touted as a serious contender for the Oscar!
