The King’s Speech—a ‘don’t miss it’ inspirational film—utilizes the talents of an outstanding cast that includes: Colin Firth, Geoffery Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, and Timothy Spall. Director Tom Hooper allows room for a full expansion of the casts’ talents. The film is a family watch film that provides opportunity for much educational conversation before and after watching.
