Truly, an amazing movie. The directing, acting, and screenplay was by far the best I've seen in 2010. This movie deserved every award it received.

The King's Speech has everything a great drama should--great characters, great actors, great direction, and a great script. Most writers take a shortcut, relying on cliches, stereotypes, and audience expectations and, in my opinion, always disappoint. They're requiring the audience to do their job. The King's Speech is one of those few films that actually develop the characters, even the minor ones, and does so wonderfully. Through small actions (the king stuttering through a story to his daughters, for example), we understand this man more and more as the movie progresses. The dialog is clever and never trite or attempting a cheap laugh or shock. There's no sex scenes or car chases or even war footage to give a cheap thrill and fill in empty spaces. While this script and the direction is so good it probably could have been a good movie with unknown actors, the exemplary cast makes it an extraordinary film.
