Rating:
R
The King's Speech is a Tom Hooper-directed drama based on the true story of Britain's King George VI (Colin Firth), a man who for years struggled with a nervous disposition and an embarrassing stutter -- until he seeks help from unorthodox Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Logue's pioneering treatment and unlikely friendship give the royal leader a sense of confidence that serves him and his country well during the dark days of World War II.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    The gift of The King's Speech is that it allows us to look on as a pair of masterful actors re-create a monumental test of wills.

    Variety

    While far from easy, both roles provide a delightful opportunity for Firth and Rush to poke a bit of fun at their profession.

  • 70

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    That film does have its attractions, notably in its two solid leads and standout support from Mr. Pearce.
