The untimely death of King George V (Michael Gambon) means that his son will be crowned as King Edward VIII (Guy Pearce), however due to his desire to marry a woman whom the church do not approve of, Edward has to step down.

Bertie (Colin Firth) is appointed as leader of the country and named King George VI. Unfortunately Bertie has suffered from a speech problem for the majority of his life and can barely speak in private, let alone public. At a time when the country is at war and desperately needing a leader they can trust, King George VI is not the ideal candidate. His wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) is forced to take it upon herself to fix the problem and hire an eccentric and unconventional speech therapist; Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush).

A conflict immediately ensues between the teaching style Logue uses and the King. However, after an unorthodox course of treatment the two become good friends and eventually cure the problem, leaving the King to lead his country to victory.

Based on the true story of King George VI, The King’s Speech tells the story of the royal and his battle with his stammer. Nominated for 12 Oscars including Best Actor (Colin Firth), Best Supporting Actress (Helena Bonham Carter) and Best Supporting Actor (Geoffrey Rush).

Wrong!

How long did it take Channel 4 to show Slumdog, because that seems to be on all the time?

Its probably best if you wait.

Channel 4 never funded it, it was the uk film council
