The King's Speech (2010)
Tells the story of the man who became King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. After his brother abdicates, George ('Bertie') reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded stutter and considered unfit to be king, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue. Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country into war.

Unbelievable how they can make an interesting movie about someone trying to conquer his stammering. A great character study by Colin Firth who makes me feel happy, sad and angry at the same time. Geoffrey Rush also plays an incredible part, but somehow I kept waiting for him to go "Arrr!! Captain Barbossa is here!" This movie is carried by these two lead actors as they really allow you to connect with their characters.

I waited a long time to see this, because I thought it would be kind of boring. Turns out it's not boring at all. Just don't expect an action filled ride, but get ready to get dragged into the emotional world of an insecure king.

Minus the F-word super inspirational.
Hooper gets excellent performances out of some great actors. Guy Pearce and Helena Bonham Carter are subtle and affecting. Geoffrey Rush delivers a fine performance, but his character is so underdeveloped that his presence, though central to the story, is entirely incidental. Colin Firth turns-in a wonderful performance as the spare son who was never meant for the throne, but was somehow better equipped than the heir apparent. He captures insecurity brilliantly.
Absolutely superb movie!

The acting was different class.
