The King's Speech - The Movie

This is a wonderful movie depicting the speech impediment of Albert, Duke of York. He has to take the throne when his brother, David, abdicates in order to marry Wallis Simpson, an American divorcee.

His speech therapist, Lionel Logue, helps him tremendously with the important speeches he has to make as King. The movie is a true story centered in the lead-up to World War II.

Lionel Logue and Albert remained close and steadfast friends all their lives.

It is a very inspiring story, and Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush do an amazing job with their roles.

Fans of the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice will be thrilled to see Elizabeth & Darcy once again share the screen since Jennifer Ehle plays Lionel's wife.


  1. I'm trying to figure out when I can get to see this movie. It sounds great!

  2. I really want to see this one, but somehow I'm doubting I'll be able to talk my husband into it.

  3. Carolsnotebook, thanks! for dropping by

  4. English language is really not among the easiest languages in the world, even for native speakers. That's why there is a demand and ask for English grammar check software, a technology that has evenhandedly new and getting more sophisticated day in and day out.
