Oh MY GOSH!
If you love period pieces... If you love history... If you love anything to do with the Royals...
YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!
My hubs took me on Sunday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! The only thing that I would caution you on is the language. Don't take the little ones. But it is used in such a creative way that you really can excuse it.
"After the death of his father King George V and the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII, Bertie who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of England. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife more », Elizabeth, the future Queen Mother, arranges for her husband to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue. After a rough start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of treatment and eventually form an unbreakable bond. With the support of Logue, his family, his government and Winston Churchill, the King will overcome his stammer and deliver a radio-address that inspires his people and unites them in battle."
