The King's Speech

I went to see The King's Speech on Sunday with my sister.  It's a movie about King George VI and the problems he faced because of his stuttering speech impediment.  He's thrust into the public eye after his father dies and his brother abdicates the throne.  The movie is beautifully done.  Colin Firth is amazing as Prince Albert.  I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone, but if you get a chance to see this excellent move, please see it.  You won't be disappointed.  There is one scene when they play Beethoven's 7th Symphony, and the music is so powerful that it brought me to tears.

I hope to see it this weekend. I am a speech-language pathologist by background and I’ve heard this movie is one a speechie will love :)
