The King’s Speech


The King’s Speech

1936: King Edward VIII has abdicated for the love of Wallis Simpson. Bertie, his brother, is crowned King George VI of England. At an office in Harley Street, London, Bertie and his wife Elizabeth (the future much-loved Queen Mother) are meeting maverick Australian speech therapist and failed actor, Lionel Logue.

Soon the eccentric therapist and the King begin their extraordinary journey to overcome the King’s stammer as he prepares to address the nation, while Great Britain stands on the brink of the Second World War. One of the most successful British films of all time, The Kings Speech won 4 Academy Awards, including Best Picture as well as 7 BAFTAs including Best Film. As his people prepare for war, the King must win his own battle to lead the nation.
