Collin Furth gives a must see performance. Lawrence Olivier, you have been replaced as the best English actor ever.

Now I see why this film has been nominated for the "Best Picture" awards. What a wonderful true story; if all history were presented like this, many many people would take history as their major! Colin Firth is magnificent as a stumbling, fumbling, bumbling would-be king; Geoffrey Rush as the patient, eccentric teacher -- the chemistry between these two was breathtaking to behold. Helena Bonham Carter was superb as Mum in her younger days! AHH, to be treated to such a film is the reason we all go to the movies. I can think of nothing that would have improved this film -- absolute perfection. Thank you, oh wondrous filmmakers for this year's best!

Beautifully portrayed with important historical relevance—a docudrama of sorts—that would be important to educators starting at the high school level. The film is deeply touching with an appropriate dose of humor.
