Rated R · 2010

No holiday season would be complete without a starchy British historical drama, and the Weinstein Company obliges us this year with this pleasant drama about the Duke of York (Colin Firth), who had to overcome a serious stammer in order to take the throne as King George VI and lead his people against the Nazi threat. The movie is based on the uncovered diaries of Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), the Australian speech therapist who succeeded where others had failed in treating the royal's vocal impediment, and the two leads keep the movie afloat with their light-footed class warfare. This Anglican buddy romance is buoyed by a spicy history lesson about the scandalous marriage of the duke's elder brother, Edward VIII, to the twice-divorced Wallis Simpson, which forced him from the throne, and by Timothy Spall as a rasping, cigar-chewing Winston Churchill. Tom Hooper directed; with Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce, Derek Jacobi, and Michael Gambon as the imperious George V. (118 min.)
