You get completely get caught up in Colin Firths character he manages to perfectly convey the frustration, if you had never seen him in anything else you could swear he actually had a stammer. The chemistry between Colin Firth and Geoffory rush is fantastic, you can really see why this was up for so many oscars. All the characters are unforgettable it already feels like an instant British classic Helena Bonham Carter plays the doting wife incredibly which makes a big change from her usual odd roles often in her husband films it was a refreshing change to see her in such a restrained and mellow role.
The screenplay, written by David Seidler is excellent. The dry British wit is hilarious. Tom Hooper (Elizabeth I) does a superb job directing this movie, and it is only rated 12a because of the swearing in the funny scene when Louge uses it to try and relax the king, it is still an incredibly feel good film. I should add that Helena Bonham-Carter is also spot-on as the haughty yet practical queen consort. Other more minor roles are effectively played (e.g., Winston Churchill, George V). The entire movie is a perfect blend of history, personal and familial drama, with broader themes of perseverance and overcoming adversity which give it a timeless application.
A acting achievement without like
We cannot begin to comment on the great line up of actors who stand alone as great individually and together. We would like to give attention to day to the lead male role, and in this favourite film of ours King George VI is played by Colin Firth.
If you are a film watcher you will no doubt be astonished by the convincing and enthralling performance. In other words, the character comes to life, and without as much as a flicker of criticism can be held as you simply forget time when told a story in this magical way, by inspiring individuals who completely capture the essence of the role they are playing, and of course also capture our full and undivided attention.
Born in an academic British family, son to a religion lecturer and a history lecturer who in turn were born from missionaries. The siblings of this fantastic actor are also in the same industry, and both Katie and Jonathan are similarly pursuing careers in the same field, and successfully so.
Having grown up acting, theatre and movies, the introduction to the scene was at an early age, and already in infant school the role of Jack Frost was played in a Christmas pantomime. Since then there has been a wide range of different education and involvement which has lead to the nomination for many great awards including winning the Oscar for best leading role for the film we love the most. And without a doubt, rightfully so, his acting in this commanding role is of no like, and you will have to look far and wide to find any performance in the cinematic world today which even comes close to matching.
