The King's Speech

Tonight I watched The King's Speech - Colin Firth as "Bertie/George V" and Geoffrey Rush as Lionel Logue.

In a word "Splendid" and highly recommended viewing! Just watch these two - the rest are mere supporting actors!

I agree...I took my daughter and my partner and we were all mesmerized.

Yes! We bought the DVD and arranged our dinner to be able to sit and watch it uninterupted! Loved it and we are going to watch it again to pick up all those little 'background' things you miss in the original viewing.

Derek Jacobi (The AB of Westminster) was shown as being villainous and Timothy Spall (Winston) was 'believable'.

I have the dvd of this, just haven't gotten around to watching it yet. Glad you liked it.

Thanks for the info on the coteneasters....
