Editor's Note
Emmy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (JOHN ADAMS) teams with screenwriter David Seidler (TUCKER: A MAN AND HIS DREAMS) to tell the story of King George VI. When his older brother abdicates the throne, nervous-mannered successor George "Bertie" VI (Colin Firth) reluctantly dons the crown. Though his stutter soon raises concerns about his leadership skills, King George VI eventually comes into his own with the help of unconventional speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Before long the king and Lionel have forged an unlikely bond, a bond that proves to have real strength when the United Kingdom is forced to flex its international might.

Professional Reviews

Hollywood Reporter
"Rush is absolutely wonderful....Carter is a revelation here..." 11/24/2010

Movieline
"[A] direct and heartfelt piece of work....Extraordinary in the way it cuts to the core of human frustration and feelings of inadequacy, reminding us how universal those feelings are." 11/24/2010

Box Office
5 stars out of 5 -- "With first rate performances from an A-list cast, the handsome period piece THE KING'S SPEECH is one of the most accessibly entertaining films of its kind in years." 09/14/2010

Entertainment Weekly
"Firth's triumph is seamlessly lined to his generous give-and-take with Rush and Bonham Carter....THE KING'S SPEECH is simultaneously cozy and majestic." -- Grade: B 12/30/2010

Washington Post
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Firth has mastered what may be the most crucial ineffable element of acting: withholding everything from viewers save that tiniest, most crucial sliver of humanity to which they can completely relate." 12/17/2010

Los Angeles Times
"[The] actors completely inhabit their absorbing roles, relishing the opportunity their exchanges provide and adding unlooked-for layers to a complicated human relationship." 11/26/2010

Wall Street Journal
"THE KING'S SPEECH is one of the most pleasurable movies to come along in years....And the depth of feeling in Tom Hooper's film is matched by the breadth of its appeal." 11/26/2010

USA Today
"Firth invests his repressed character with nuance, dignity and humor, leaving an indelible impression." 11/26/2010

Chicago Sun-Times
4 stars out of 4 -- "[R]ich in period detail....A superior historical drama and a powerful personal one.." 12/15/2010

Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THE KING'S SPEECH -- a crowning achievement powered by a dream cast -- digs vibrant human drama out of the dry dust of history." 11/24/2010

New York Times
"[A] buddy story about aggressively charming opposites....[With] two solid leads and standout support from Mr. Pearce." 11/25/2010

New York, Observer 9 of 10
The King's Speech is a masterpiece...This true story, impeccably directed by Tom Hooper (13 Emmys for TV's John Adams miniseries) from an exemplary, well-researched screenplay by David Seidler, is a history lesson with warm, heart-rending humor that centers on the quirky relationship between England's beloved King George VI (Colin Firth, in the performance of a lifetime) and his irreverent, unconventional Australian speech teacher, a failed Shakespearean actor named Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). The film is a colossal triumph on so many levels that it's a challenge to know how to begin to describe it...It's an epic story, but the regal pomp and pageantry are never intrusive. Even with his inventive staging and surprising visuals, Director Hooper keeps everything as real and natural as breathing. The majestic cast is overwhelming...The King's Speech has left me speechless. - Rex Reed
