Colin's finestBy UKGuy (7 reviews) from Oxford , 16 Nov 2010

[Highly rated reviewer]On the face of it, you could be put off at thought of spending nearly 2 hours listing to someone stuttering their way through endless speech therapy lessons. However, unlike Colin Firth's last movie, A Single Man, which was a much more lightweight affair, this has real substance.
Within a short time, you really feel for the traumas that King George must have gone through.
Geoffrey Rush is spot on as the unconventional Aussie speech therapist.
Deserves at least a Bafta and maybe even an Oscar

King of a film.By Routemaster (87 reviews) from Cambridge , 23 Apr 2013Colin Firth is amazing in this film, and at last for me is now a top class actor. Great film which is very recomended.
Film fit for a kingBy Bobsview (549 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 03 Apr 2013Colin Firth as King George 6th overcoming a serious stammer during the period of his brothers abdication over Mrs Wallis, and the build up to the declaration of war with Germany in 1939. Great cast and a very well crafted great film with superb performance from Coin Firth.
Meets ExpectationsBy Tray3r (1 review) , 30 Mar 2013Stunning. I wasn't sure whether I would like it - but it deserves its awards. Excellent acting, attention to reality, and execution.
Brilliant SpeechBy a customer , 16 Mar 2013Brilliant watching this film, had been looking forward to this for so long and was not dissapointed. Colin Firth was brilliant, so lovely to also see Jennifer Ehle in this film as well.
