The King's Speech is a royal drama 

A lovely film that draws out the best of British character.

The lovely film The King's Speech is about all things that we think of when we think of the best of the UK, particularly its WWII legacy. This is a nation that can sometimes get it right and rise to the occasion, and carry on under difficult circumstances. The King's Speech tells the tale of King George VI's (Colin Firth) rapid ascendancy to the throne of Britain under the duress of his brother's selfish abdication and Hitler's rise in Europe. That Bertie, as we come to know George by, should become a source of strength and guidance for his country under these circumstances serves as an example of two brilliant truths about the general public: their confidence must be earned but their capacity to forgive faults is genuine.
