Memorable, crazy movie
Bad Acting and worse Bad Screenplay
It really made me laugh, but for some moments I was tearing up because I could relate so much.
There is nothing on this earth to be more prized than true friendship , and that is the most beautiful message in this movie . This film gives us a different perspective to the Royals , that they like the rest of the world have weaknesses . As you watch it you feel like you are travelling through time , in a magical epoch . Colin Firth played King George VI in a unique way not so usual and his match with Jeffrey Rash was out of this world . The only error is that his older brother the duke of Windsor in the picture looks a lot younger than George VI .
Andrea Tsereteli (House of Targaryen)
David Seidler, who wrote the screenplay, clearly did his homework, and the script is rich with dialogue uttered by the royal prototypes. Though he takes artistic license with certain facts, most such liberties are acceptable.
A brilliant Colin Firth leading a sensational cast with Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter.Watching Firth agonisingly stammer his way through the closing speech at the Empire Exhibition at Wembley Stadium in 1925 is a masterclass in acting.
I didn't expect to like this film due to the genre but I enjoyed it all the way through and it had some funny moments even if they weren't to be :). Colin Firth does an incredible job with this character and his Oscar was well deserved!
First off let me say I was Moved to tears by this film, I had no idea that King George the Sixth had a Speech Impediment. this film is British History personified and exemplified and Expounded on upon, this is an educational experience, for mind,s young and old alike Except for brief periods of profanity I see nothing that a child as young as 15 could not grasp, I found this film to be an excellent way to pass two hours, it is also a look in the the early life of Queen Elizabeth. I would put my personal seal of approval on this masterpiece of Movie making excellence. this had an all star cast Michael Gambon as King George the Fifth Colin Firth as King George the Sixth and Geoffrey Rush as his Speech therapist this is an All star Cast Michael Gambon you might know this name aka ( Professor Albus Dumbledore) from the Harry Potter Film Franchise.
