I tend to abstain from music, TV, and movie reviews because that is not the purpose of this blog. The focus of this blog is the search and analysis of introspective thoughts, spiritual concepts, Biblical ideas, and personal moments of the human experience.

The King's Speech; Rotten Tomatoes: 95% (Audience: 96%)

 

However, I must make an exception to my rule and give praise to the British movie/film The King’s Speech. This incredible, profound, and unforgettable movie is one that, even though I originally approached with moderate expectations, ended up truly being a masterpiece.

The movie follows the adult life of Prince Albert, Duke of York (future George VI) who is second-in-line to the British crown (son of George V). Even though the king’s second son, Albert, suffers from constant unending stammering it is expected that he might just play an important role in the future of the country. The movie depicts the journey of the Prince–and then King– through the psychological, emotional, spiritual, and physical challenges of his overcoming stammering in order to one day inspire the confidence that the Britons will need in the dark years that lay before them.

The script is based on the correspondence and notes from Prince Albert’s (George VI) speech therapist, Lionel Logue. Whether you enjoy British cinematography or not, this is one film that will truly move you to believe in capacity and courage of a human heart and in the discovery of another fascinating individual in human history.

I tried not to give too much of the plot and key points of the story away. Nevertheless, it is by far one of the best (if not the best) film I have watched in the past year. If you live in the Raleigh-Durham area, the film is currently playing at Galaxy Cinema in Cary and at Southpoint Cinemas in Durham.

I promise you that it is a film you will walk out of absolutely satisfied. Once again, praises to Colin Firth, Tom Hooper, David Seidler, and the rest of the staff and cast of The King’s Speech.

PS: And for those who consider themselves followers of ROTTEN TOMATOES, RT gave The King’s Speech a 95% rating (96% by audience).
