This was one of the better movies that I have seen. It shows that once you set your mind to something, you can accomplish just about anything.
The acting was great and so was the set work.

Slow to build, and not as climactic as you would hope (wanting to walk out emotionally moved), the acting by all -- Firth, Rush, Carter - was superb and capitvating. The factual storyline (i.e., the King's little girls are the current Queen and her sister) made it easy to feel so pained for the King and the Royal Family. Nevertheless, I only wanted more of a crescendo on how strong the relationships were or how convincingly the King overcame his obstacles and inspired and calmed his nation under the stresses and fears of World War II.

A fascinating story and beautiful performances by everyone, but especially Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham-Carter, make this the best English language film I've seen this year.
