The King's Speech 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 into war.

Just because it is a true story docent mean it gets in the way of it being interesting. An amazingly well performed coming of King film. The world about to march dangerously into a Second World War as the nation look to its leader. A time when deference still existed and Kings were seen as somewhat a living God, However under the veil remains a story familiar to many people and some know it first hand, a difficult relationship with family and duty. although we have a duty to look after ourselves and our family and Colin firth has a duty to a nation. rather higher stakes. An amazing witty film that has the capability to make one laugh cry and actual god forbid lean something all in one. Well played

What is a good comment?

Here are some ideas:

  • It is not an objective critic of the movie, but rather a description of what you felt watching the movie.

  • You should not hesitate to write more about your emotions than about the movie itself.

  • And take care not to divulgue any information about the plot!

But in the end, other users are the one rating the comments, so you may do as you feel it should be done.
