The King's Speech.... Speechless!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!!!! It was amazing, and definitely confirmed what a great actor Colin Firth is!  His speech therapist played by Geoffrey Rush, and wife played by Helena Bonham Carter (another favourite of mine) were also brilliant!

The King's Speech is, as it was advertised, a historical drama, but it did have some comedic acts throughout... and an especially hilarious scene, which I won't ruin for you now!  I would highly recommend this to everyone!

For those unfamiliar with the story,  King George VI (Colin Firth) is introduced to Lionel Logue, a speech therapist who is known for his unorthodox methods to help patients with their stammer.  The two men build a friendship as Logue helps him overcome his speech impedement, and after his brother abdicates the throne, the King must deliver a radio broadcast at the beginning of World War II.
