Summary:
" Prince Albert, "Bertie" (Academy Award winner Colin Firth), was the second son of King George V and so never destined to rule. But after the passing of his father and the scandalous abdication of his brother, Edward VIII (Guy Pearce), Bertie suddenly finds himself facing accession to the crown and leadership of an Empire on the verge of war.Bertie has been crippled by a debilitating speech impediment since he was very young and in the age of radio and with his country in need of a leader. Bertie's wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), the future Queen Mother, realises her husband needs help. It is through her search that Bertie arrives at the office of Lionel Logue (Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush), an eccentric Australian speech therapist with unorthodox techniques.After a rough start, Bertie and the Speech Therapist delve into the treatment and so begins a most remarkable relationship between the two men. With the support of Logue and his family, the new King will overcome his stammer, find his voice and deliver a radio address that will unite a nation"--Container.
