A Review of "The King's Speech"

We went to watch this movie last night and simply loved it!

here is a review:

"Wonderful performances, a bit of history and an absorbing character study make "The King's Speech" one of the best movies of the year.

Colin Firth gives an incredible performance as Albert, the Duke of York, whom we meet in the 1920s. The second son of King George V (Michael Gambon), Albert leads a royal, somewhat secluded life with his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) and their two daughters.

Albert knows his older brother, Prince Edward (Guy Pearce), will ascend to the throne - or at least that's what he assumes. That is fine with Albert, who has a pronounced stammer he can't remember being without. Public appearances make him nearly sick with worry as a result, not to mention the advent of radio, which, of course, could carry his speeches all over the world."

    My eldest son turned around and said, just as the mob=vie ended, "when are we coming to see it again!"
