Being a teenage girl, this wasn't exactly at the top of my films-to-see list, but it was my mother's birthday, and I can never say no to a movie. I have to say I'm glad I went. The King's Speech may have been predictable but it was truly inspiring. All of the characters were vivid and real, and at many points this very dramatic film made me laugh. Helena Bonham Carter was beautiful and eloquent and Colin Firth did an impeccable job with not only a stutter, but playing King George VI with believability and passion. Go see it! -R.
