Colin Firth has already been the king of many women’s hearts for a long time. But when he took on the role of King George VI, he secured his place in cinematic history.

In this deeply compelling yet whimsically delightful film, Firth plays a man with a debilitating fear of public speaking, which is obviously a problem when you happen to be the King of England on the brink of World War II. Desperate to help her husband, Queen Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) enlists the unorthodox expertise of Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), who forces the the King to undergo a series of seemingly ridiculous yet ultimately effective exercises.

Based on the true story, this movie is a stirring tale of an unconventional friendship; in other words, expect to cry a few happy tears into your tea cup. And even though proper etiquette is important at Afternoon Tea, we won’t be offended if you laugh with your mouth full of scone, because this film also happens to be wonderfully funny. (Sarah Pitre)

"A masterpiece...A colossal triumph on so many levels that it’s a challenge to know how to begin to describe it." -Rex Reed, The New York Observer
