The Kings Speech

This film is one of the best films produced in 2010, its clever recollection of both a episode in history and a very personal story the two blend perfectly and create one of the best dramatizations of a historical event ever made. The feeling each and every actor put into the film is incredible and makes you feel like its the first time they have felt the effects of the events, rather than the act they play. The director does a tremendous job at creating an atmosphere that even though this film is set in the 1930’s feels like it is happening in today’s society.

You would think that seeing a bunch of verbal drills and speech exercises would be boring and put a real dull on the movie. there are a lot of them and they are silly, but are the right amount of funny to get a good laugh out of them. The humour in the film is subtle but straight up, even when Lionel encourages His Royal Highness to use swear words of the four- letter variety as a way to connect the words of a speech that he has a hard time getting out. and I couldn’t help but laugh when I listened to a member of the royal family swear.
