Riveting in its drama and subtle humor, ‘The King’s Speech’ has become the darling of the awards season. Taking place in the years between World War I and World War II, the film stars Colin Firth as Prince Albert, a stuttering second son of Britain’s King George V.
Albert’s wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), seeks out help from an unconventional therapist: Lionel Louge (Geoffrey Rush). In terse, frustrating and sometimes hilarious battles, Louge works to help Albert overcome his impediment. As Nazi bombs fall on London as Albert — who has become King George VI after his brother (Guy Pearce) abdicates– must address the nation, Logue must help him find his voice.
‘The King’s Speech’ was nominated for seven Golden Globe Awards, including Best Actor for Firth and Best Supporting nods for Rush and Carter. Those stars will talk live with viewers right here.
