Following the scandalous abdication of his brother King Edward VIII, Bertie (Colin Firth) who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of the United Kingdom. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) seeks out the help of eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Based on the true story of King George VI, The King's Speech is the inspirational tale of one man's quest to find his voice.



  • Well worth a look.

    By Old Skool Trekkie
    Colin Firth demonstrates his versatility in a wonderful film. Understated performances and natural interaction between the cast as the story unfolds throughout the film's running time. Understated soundtrack and everything is so well paced; merited the awards the film won.
  • Beautiful

    By PaulNGant
    This really is a five star film in every way. Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush are simply superb, and I can't help but cry as 'The Speech' is delivered towards the end of the film. In fact, it is so impactive that I am misty-eyed as I type this. One of few films in recent years that is truly deserving of top marks and the accolades it received
  • Surprisingly good!

    By Lee Averne
    Didn't think I'd like this film as I'm quite young, but I was surprised as I actually really enjoyed it. Excellent film.
  • Outstanding

    By Minner02
    Both Rush and Firth were outstanding in their roles and Bonham-Carter eerily like the late Queen Mother. A great story of friendship and overcoming what feel like the biggest obstacles in life. Highly deserving of all of it's awards.
  • A Classic

    By loonaticrunner
    A superb performance a must see for anyone, of any age. The cost is small for the HD version and its a film you can see over and over again.

  • Excellent film- iTunes Extras doesn't work!!

    By Grieder5
    Regarding the film, it was amazing. Highly recommended, one of the best films of the decade so far. Downloads of both HD and SD versions and iTunes Extras went smoothly. Nonetheless, iTunes Extras simply doesn't work! Whenever I click to watch any of the features iTunes Extras supposed provides, it just ignores me and doesn't do anything at all! Please, fix that! Otherwise, excellent purchase.
