I went to see The King’s speech the other day, and really enjoyed it.

This is a film about how a humble speech therapist saved: his friend from a life on the sidelines; the British monarchy; Britain during World War II; and the British Empire!!

Geoffrey Rush does a wonderful job of playing Lionel Logue; and Colin Firth owns the part of Bertie ‘Johnston’ Windsor – aka George VI. Helena Bonham Carter brings the future Queen Mother to life.

Inspirational film, that shows the emergence of a leader, from a man plagued by doubts and his stammer. The film takes you behind the scenes – at a time when the British monarchy was almost bought down.

See it if you have time.
