Best Movie for Grownups 2011: The King's Speech



  
Directed by Tom Hooper
Rated R
Runtime: 118 mins

A wondrous mix of inspired direction, breathtaking performances, and a compelling true human drama, The King's Speech is darn close to perfect.

We meet the king of England's second son (Colin Firth) in the 1930s, when he reluctantly visits a no-nonsense speech therapist (an astonishing Geoffrey Rush) for treatment of a per ­ sistent stammer. The task turns epic when the prince, thrust onto the throne, must address his nation as it goes to war — and overcome not only his speech disability but also the terrible secrets that triggered it.

Seldom in film have the currents of history and the eddies of human frailty been so gingerly interwoven.
