The King's Speech

Quiet week; one movie, and not much else.

"The King's Speech" is an excellent historical drama. In many ways, it is structured like a come-from-behind sports movie, except that the underdog team is the king of England, and the adversary is his need to get past a severe stutter. While this movie might not appeal to everyone, and it takes a few liberties with history (the majority of George's stutter was beaten in the first two years of therapy, before he became king), it is very nearly perfect within those limits. If you suspect that there is even a possibility that you will enjoy this movie, you will enjoy it a great deal.
