The King’s Speech (2010 Movie)

The reign of Great Britain’s King George VI, who was on the throne during World War II, is illustrated beautifully by the 2010 film, The King’s Speech.  In this Oscar-winning movie, directed by Tom Hooper, a speech therapist named Lionel Logue helps George VI to overcome a speech impediment.  Colin Firth stars as George VI and Geoffrey Rush co-stars as Lionel Logue.
