Academy Awards 2010 - Best Picture
Rating: 4/5 -- The film is richly rooted, with splendid trappings, including pea-soup fogs. For all the pomp and protocol, it's an intimate story about a scared man who must find his voice if he is to rise, in regal stature, above his epaulets. Full Review
San Diego Reader
[A] direct and heartfelt piece of work....Extraordinary in the way it cuts to the core of human frustration and feelings of inadequacy, reminding us how universal those feelings are.
[A] buddy story about aggressively charming opposites....[With] two solid leads and standout support from Mr. Pearce.
New York Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- Firth has mastered what may be the most crucial ineffable element of acting: withholding everything from viewers save that tiniest, most crucial sliver of humanity to which they can completely relate.
Rating: 8.6/10 -- A brilliant Colin Firth leading a sensational cast with Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter. [Full review in Spanish] Full Review

Travel without prejudice and you will enjoy a moving, impeccably acted and surprisingly funny slice of comfort food. There are worse ways of starting an unpromising looking year. Full Review
THE KING'S SPEECH is one of the most pleasurable movies to come along in years....And the depth of feeling in Tom Hooper's film is matched by the breadth of its appeal.
Wall Street Journal
Emmy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (JOHN ADAMS) teams with screenwriter David Seidler (TUCKER: A MAN AND HIS DREAMS) to tell the story of King George VI. When his older brother abdicates the throne, nervous-mannered successor George "Bertie" VI (Colin Firth) reluctantly dons the crown. Though his stutter soon raises concerns about his leadership skills, King George VI eventually comes into his own with the help of unconventional speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Before long the king and Lionel have forged an unlikely bond, a bond that proves to have real strength when the United Kingdom is forced to flex its international might.
