  • I thought they were absolutely astounding, the conviction in their voices when they spoke gave me chills
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes when Logue told the King to let himself go and to get mad, he would outright question his authority, forcing the King to take a stand for himself and in the process would forget his stammer

      Have you ever stepped up to give a presentation, whether it be for a school project or a presentation for your job, and then your words just fail you? You go up there and your mind just goes blank and time begins to expand right before your eyes, seconds feel like hours, and your just left standing up there.

      This movie goes beyond the call of duty when it comes to outstanding performances. The


      fact that this movie is based on actual events, makes it all the more entertaining. The soundtrack was tremendous, and at points in the movie, the volume would become incredibly quiet, as so you could only hear the King, and his stammer.

      The story begins with King George VI’s rise to the throne after the death of his father and the affair his older brother has. King George VI has a stammer, and is constantly mocked by many, including his father. He goes to see many speech therapists, but none of them can help him, until he meets Lionel Logue. With his unconventional and unorthodox techniques, him and the King create a special bond that leads to the King overcoming his stammer.

      King George VI, played by Colin Firth and Lionel Logue, played by Geoffery Rush both had phenomenal performances. I thought they were absolutely astounding, the conviction ...

      in their voices when they spoke gave me chills. Especially near the end of the movie, when the stammer begins to disappear (spoiler), the King becomes the ultimate speaker.

      Not to mention the other characters in the movie, the King’s wife (played by Helena Carter) was breath-taking as well. The minor sub-characters, played an important role in really immersing the audience into the movie.

      I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes when Logue told the King to

      let himself go and to get mad, he would outright question his authority, forcing the King to take a stand for himself and in the process would forget his stammer. When the King would lose his stammer, I would get the chills.

      Overall, this movie is absolutely fantastic. I definitely learned a lesson though. I would fret over little school project presentations, when this guy was the King of England and giving speeches to entire countries multiple times.

I can very much relate to how difficult it was to speak in a crowd. It muat have been really difficult especially that he suffers from a speech problem as well. This movie shows ua that everyone suffers differently and we all have battles you must win over no matter what our status in the society was.

Right, imagine a king having speech problems, that would have been so hard to him.
The acting was amaaazing, Colin did a great job, so did the other characters. It was a nice movie to watch.
