The King's Speech 
The King's Speech review
3.5/4 stars

Prince Albert, Duke of York/ King George V (Colin Firth), the second son of King George V has problems with speeches. Elizabeth, Duchess of York/Queen Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), helps in resolving this concern by seeking assistance from several Doctors, including Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Astounding performances from the cast really made this film effective and appealing. Rush and Firth had on-screen chemistry while Helene Bonham Carter was charismatic. The score was suitable for most of the scenes and cinematography was elegant, with memorable historic locations. Its costume and surroundings of the 1920’s and 1930’s were recognized and screenplay was enchanting. A line from King George – “If I am King, where is my power? Can I declare war? Form a government? Levy a tax? No! And yet I am the seat of all authority because they think that when I speak, I speak for them. But I can't speak.” Their main purposes aside from the historical references were themes of believing in your capabilities, friendship (Lionel’s patience and belief in Bertie) and family (Queen Elizabeth’s support despite the King’s flaws). Aside from a few historical inaccuracies (Bertie nickname, final scene of the Buckingham Palace, Winston Churchill's role in the abdication crisis, etc.) and plain subject, King’s Speech still delivers in many aspects.
