Highly enough, about this one.

“The King’s Speech.”

Written by David Seidler, a screenwriter who (unlike so many A-List scribes) is not only old enough to shave, but old enough to have sons (and daughters?) of A-List-screenwriter age, who shave, as well.

The film documents the ascension to the British throne of lifelong stammerer, King George VI (father of the current Queen, Elizabeth II) – in the light of his ongoing treatment by speech therapist, Lionel Logue.

Excellent performances, from a stellar cast.
And easy to understand why Colin Firth walked off with so many major awards, this year.

Check out the trailer:

And, yes.
I do realize there’s a Royal wedding coming up, this Friday.

And, possibly.
That fact did influence me to blog about this film, at this time.

God Save the… whatever.

Peace.
