What an amazingly simple movie and yet surprisingly, perfect! I really enjoyed watching The King’s Speech on the big screen. It was a well made movie and very well-acted by all- Geoffrey Rush, Colin Firth, and Helena Carter Bonham. All actors played their roles well and their acting was superb. Colin Firth plays the role of George VI, who amidst a physical disability and uncertain times (WWII looming), attempts to overcome the odds. Not only is this movie one that the history buffs will enjoy, it is just a good movie overall. The concept is not made-up or new- but rather based on a true story, and the acting couldn’t be better- Colin Firth is amazing as King George VI and Geoffrey Rush’s acting is brilliant as always. Helena Carter Bonham really acts well as the QUEEN MOTHER. I only wish this movie were longer. I really enjoyed The King’s Speech and apparently so did the audience around me. There was clapping at the end. With all the contenders this year at the Academy Awards, I sure hope the “Academy” selects The King’s Speech.
