Marion movie review: The King’s Speech (英国王のスピーチ)

The King’s Speech (英国王のスピーチ)

Hello everyone, this is Marion from DMA.

I would like to write a short review on the latest movie I have seen, ‘The King’s Speech’.

As some of you may now, this movie has won 4 Academy Awards on February 27th (Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay).

The movie is based on the true story of King George VI of Britain, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. Being the second son of George V, George VI was not supposed to become King, but after his older brother’s abdication, he did not have any choice and had to access the throne.

Being King implies public appearances and many public speeches, however, George VI had a major stuttering problem… The movie revolves around George’s fears and doubts, the help he received from his speech therapist, and how he became one of the most well-known British monarchs.

‘The King’s Speech’ left me speechless! The two lead actors, Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, give amazing performances, as well as Helena Bonham-Carter (who plays George’s wife, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon) and many others.

This movie is a perfect blend of history, personal and familial drama and it makes the audience feel a bit closer to an otherwise very distant Royal Family.

I strongly recommend this movie, you will not be disappointed!
