Geoffrey Rush, a proud Australian playing the role of another proud Australian, was one of the film's producers (smart man). Todd Hooper directed with David Seidler as the writer who provided the brilliant material for those great actors involved to create what is now widely recognized as a superb visual story.
Receiving twelve Academy Award nominations, The King's Speech manages to paint one of the wealthiest royal men in history as a sympathetic figure worthy of the (common) audience's attentions--and there's close to $122,000,000 in gross sales to prove it. With a $15-million budget, the film has made more than 100-times its cost...and with very good reason indeed.
Simply put, this film is impeccable. See it in theatres or die a fool.
On the humbled Housel-scale, The King's Speech ranks an unprecedented 10+/10.
2011 may be the year that Hollywood begins to make movies again....
