The King´s Speech by Henar García

The King`s Speech is a British Film, based on the true story of King George VI. The movie was filmed in late 2009 and early 2010, in London and other locations in Britain. It was directed by Tom Hooper and written by David Seidler.
In January 1936, George V (Michael Gambon) died, and his son Edward (Guy Pearce) ascends the throne as King Edward VIII. Months laterEdward, pressed by the impossibility to get married with the woman he loves, decides to abdicate and Prince Albert (played by Colin Firth) becomes King George VI.
Albert is affected by a painful stammer that difficults his speech. Trying to solve his elocution problems, his wife Isabel (Helena Bonham Carter) hires Lionel Longue (Geoffrey Rush), an Australian speech therapist who uses unconventional methods.
The magnificence of this film is the story of these two characters and how Lionel Longue,through therapy, fights with the King`s deepest fears, and how Bertie gains confident in himself.
The end of the film is really exciting, a film that deserves each of the five Oscar awards that  has.
