The King Speaks

Almost more than tell us the real life story of King George VI and the struggles he had to go through to tame his speech impediment so he could address his subjects (after his brother Edward abdicated the thrown to marry an American divorcee), this documentary is proof of just how great a job Colin Firth did portraying the man in his Oscar-winning role in The King’s Speech. (Watch them back-to-back and see for yourself.) In addition, it features a series of interviews with past patients of Lionel Logue, the therapist whose unorthodox methods help save the King and all of England.
