The King’s Speech (2010)

Queen Elizabeth II gave a speech on the 75th anniversary of VE Day. She was recreating what her father, George VI, had done on that glorious day.

Did you know the King had a speech impediment? Since his childhood, he had a persistent stammer. He never expected to become king, never expected that he would have to be the voice of his people. But that’s all water under the bridge, now.

This award-winning film is an inside look at how Bertie learned to overcome his difficulties with the help of Lionel Logue, his speech therapist.

The film was on television last night. (Good timing…)
