The King's Speech

Both moving and amusing, this Oscar-snatching British film dramatizes King George VI's surprise ascension to the British throne on the eve of World War II. After his brother abdicates, mild-mannered wallflower George (the consistently wonderful Colin Firth) engages the services of an unorthodox speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush) to overcome his crippling stutter and prove to himself he's worthy of the position. Think The Queen crossed with The Odd Couple. 118 minutes R.
