Overview
After the death of his father King George V (Michael Gambon) and the scandalous abdication of his brother King Edward VIII (Guy Pearce), Bertie (Colin Firth in his Academy Award® winning performance), who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of England. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), arranges for her husband to see eccentric speech therapist Lionel Logue (Academy Award® Winner Geoffrey Rush). Winner of 4 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Director (Tom Hooper), Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor (Colin Firth), The King's Speech is an inspirational tale of one man's quest to find his voice, inspire his people, and rally the world.
