DVD Review: The King’s Speech

It’s no surprise The King’s Speech won the top honors at the Academy Awards.

The film is well-made and includes outstanding performances that back up a great script.

The King’s Speech centers around Prince Albert (Colin Firth), the Duke of York who grew up in the shadow of his brother Edward (Guy Pearce).

Albert does not like public appearances because he stammers, however, after the public begins to notice his stammer, his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham-Carter) seeks out therapies that may help him.

After searching and failing to find the right doctor, Elizabeth turns to Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) – a man who has quite a reputation in the medical community.

Lionel uses unorthodox approaches to help Albert with his stammer, including refusing to call him His Royal Highness.

The King’s Speech is a beautiful film that shows the hardships that Prince Albert had to overcome and the friendship between him and Lionel.

The DVD extras include commentary from Tom Hooper and an interview with Logue’s grandson, author Mark Logue, about the search through family records that unearthed the story.
