The King’s Speech

A lot of you have been writing Pamela about a movie that has created a lot of Oscar buzz, “The King’s Speech.”

The King’s Speech is based on a true story about King George VI (played by Colin Firth, who has already won a Golden Globe for his role) who, to overcome his stutter, goes to Lionel Logue – an unconventional speech therapist, played by Geoffrey Rush. The two men become friends as they work together and after his brother abdicates, the King relies on Logue to help him make a radio broadcast at the beginning of Second World War.

Take a look at the trailer here:

Because of all your suggestions, Pamela is planning on seeing the King’s Speech this week. Already she can see the parallels to public speaking – overcoming your fears, teaching yourself self-confidence, speaking in front of thousands of people (!!) But a full review will come this week.

Have you seen this movie? What do you think? Let us know by posting a comment below! And remember, the Oscars are on February 27th, so get that popcorn ready!
