Review

As the second son of George V, the future George VI was not expected to ascend to the throne, but when his brother Edward abdicated he found himself a reluctant king. Plagued by a nervous stammer he was expected to make a rousing radio speech to herald Britain’s entry into the war against the Third Reich. ‘The Kings Speech’ charts the touching, often humourous, personal relationship that developed between England's reluctant King and his irreverent Australian speech therapist, Lionel Logue.
A rose tinted, but finely performed, drama.
