When I went to go see this, I was expecting a historical drama with great acting. I didn't expect to be moved and riveted. The King's Speech is a great movie, a masterpiece in EVERY sense of the word. I can't remember the last time I was so enthralled by a film. Geoffrey Rush is absolutely superb and Colin Firth does a great job portraying the stammering King. The King's Speech embodies pretty much everything that I love about cinema.
Best movie of 2010.
It's consistent with what I have heard. If my boy Barbossa can't get the supporting actor statuette I hope John Hawkes steals it...SEE WINTER'S BONE...it's the best movie that won't win ****.
Watched last night. I can't even begin. Wow. I'm still thinking about it. I was floored. This is a MUST SEE film. Perfect, damn near perfect.
It is, one of my all time favorite movies. I raved about it in this thread a while back. This film is an absolute masterpiece and if any of you haven't seen it, you should make it the next movie you watch!
