Having captured the imagination of a global audience, The King's Speech has quickly become one of the most beloved films of recent years, storming the international box office and receiving unanimous critical support.

Based on the true story of King George VI's epic journey to overcome immense personal difficulties on his way to the throne,The King's Speech deftly explores the touching and intricate personal relationship between a reluctant king and the unconventional speech therapist, Lionel Logue. With the threat of the Second World War growing on the horizon, the king must discover hidden worth to become the voice of, and inspiration for, the nation.
