"The King's Speech"

Tonight WM and I went to see one of the best movies I have ever seen. The sets were fabulous, the costumes wonderful and the acting superb!

I can rarely sit through a whole movie (without knitting) and not fidget or need a drink or a toilet break or want to know how much longer it has to go! Tonight I did none of those things!

If you are a lover of history, particularly British history, or a lover of spoken language, or enjoy narratives about those who face difficulties head on and triumph, or simply a fan of Geoffrey Rush or Colin Firth, you should see this movie.

In my opinion, it deserves every award for which it has been nominated.


  1. I thought the movie looked interesting before, will seek it out after your glowing review!

  2. I completely agree with you, it was/is a great movie.

    Must admit that I got mildly distracted by the wallpaper and Lionel's lovely vests!

  3. I saw it about six weeks ago and loved it. Loved the old street scenes and the costuming, in particular Helena Bonham Carter's hats. The acting was superb.
