The King's Speech
Directed by Tom Hooper
Rated R
Runtime: 118 mins
 

His heartrending depiction of a man struggling with a stammer would be remarkable enough, but Firth invests the role of King George VI with searing humanity.

Embodying shame, bitterness, and vulnerability, Firth inhabits the man's entire lifetime, transmitting it to us with subliminal power. Screen acting gets no better than this.

 

We Also Loved: Michael Caine, Harry Brown; Michael Douglas, Solitary Man; Robert Duvall, Get Low; Kevin Spacey, Casino Jack.
