Kings Speech Review
Well, I know I'm weeks behind, but for anyone who hasn't already seen this movie, I suggest to go see it. That is of course, if you enjoy drama's, and awesome British humor. The story is superb.
The premise is basically King George the 5th is old and sick. He dies, and the kingship goes to his oldest son. However, his oldest son is a philanderer (or at least, is interested in one) and kings are unable to marry someone who has been divorced. That being said, the crown is then passed to the younger son, who happens to have a severe speech impediment. The time frame is that of WW2, and thus, it is extremely important that Europe has a leader that can you.... speak. So he proceeds to get a speech coach, and that's where the movie takes off, and doesn't let up. Before you complain about spoilers, all that information is given to you upfront anyways, but the movie is basically about the relationship between the two, and the growth of an unappreciated man .
It has just won 4 oscars... including best movie of the year (big one), best actor, best director.
Go see this movie!
