The King's Speech
On the weekend I had the pleasure of seeing a new an highly regarded film, The King's Speech. It documents the rise of King George VI, who happens to have a stutter which is rather hard when you life will be based upon making public speeches and addresses to the nation and world. It is set between 1925 and 1939 and focuses in on the friendship forged between the King (also known as Bertie) and his unconventional Australian speech therapist.
It was a fantastic and moving film which I thoroughly enjoyed it.
