The King's Speech

So, Ken, Q. and I saw it last night, and (no surprise given my rabid Anglophilia) I loved it. Such great production values, such great performances (it's always wonderful to see Colin Firth get to play something besides another iteration of Mr. Darcy). At its heart, the movie is about surprising and lasting friendship.

Geoff saw it in England where it is most definitely NOT rated "R." You know the Brits--an f-bomb here, an f-bomb there don't amount to much when you can unload them with a swanky accent.

Recommended.

My husband and I have seen this film twice now and got equally caught up in the story and the people each time. It's beautiful.
