Synopsis

When England’s throne is suddenly thrust upon him, amidst royal family scandal and impending world war, King George VI (Colin Firth, Oscar® winner, Best Actor) must overcome a lifelong, debilitating speech impediment to lead his nation. After his iron-willed, compassionate wife Elizabeth (Oscar® nominee Helena Bonham Carter) secretly enlists an eccentric speech therapist (Oscar® winner Geoffrey Rush), the two men forge an unlikely friendship that will ultimately empower the monarch to find his voice, inspire his people and rally the world. Based on an inspiring true story, The King’s Speech has been universally hailed as “a masterpiece. The majestic cast is overwhelming” (The New York Observer).
