Great casting - Great Acting
Absolutely splendid performances from Geoffrey Rush (does he give any other kind?) and Colin Firth. A wonderful film that made me feel good from the top of my head to my toes.
I had put off seeing this because of all of they hype surrouding it and to be honest I had no clue what it was about (generally not into 'historical' things). I was pleasantly surprised. Was a well acted, beautiful moving that flowed along quite nicely. Glad I finally watched it - well worth a view.
Well done in terms of topic and great actors!
Excellent acting and captured the story well.
Brilliant acting-but slow moving, For some could be a bit boring
Fantastic movie very realistic
Thoroughly enjoyable. Colin Firth as Prince Bertie is likeable enough for you not to be put off by his rudeness and Geoffrey Rush plays his part perfectly s the irreverant Australian. The relationship is complex and you get a real sense of the depth of it without any triteness. I can see why it was a biggie on the awards lists. A good historical piece and an excellent way to spend a couple of hours engrossed in this story.
Superb film, great acting from the 3 main characters and a truly fascinating story about royalty and the "upper class" in Britain. Geoffrey Rush proves yet again how versatile an actor he is. One of my favourites.
Good movie- not sure everyones cup of tea, but very well acted & deliberate, An actors movie.
Excellent. Historical connection makes it so unique. Acting and production are best quality.
Perhaps inevitably, I came at this with high-ish expectations (given its Oscar win), only to be confronted with the kind of slick sentimental entertainment that wins these kinds of awards. Admittedly well acted by Colin Firth (king) and Geoffrey Rush (speech therapist), the string section was slathered on too thickly and the plot far too schematic (initial success, rejection, reconciliation, final success) for my tastes. Still, the British history lesson running astride the personal drama was interesting.
I'm not a big fan of the Royals, but still enjoyed this movie. The extras on the Blu-Ray were really good to check out after watching this one.
It was a good movie but I don't see why everyone is saying it's such an amazing movie.
A good movie. Not as great as I was hoping, but the acting was briliant. Go the Aussies!
We loved it - the story was very powerful and had me on the verge of tears in places! Watch it - you'll be glad you did!
Just as good as the critics say
A good reconstruction of the relationship between Lionel and King George VI (if not entirely historically accurate); great acting; it makes you wonder what the world would have been like if the King had not had his speech impediment helped by this expatriate Aussie speech therapist!
It was all it was wrapped up to be ... great acting, great story, great scenes/costumes etc. Really wonderful. I really liked the historical aspects of the monarchy and the infamous Mrs Wallace as well. Geoffrey Rush was as usual fantastic, but Colin Firth - a simply wonderful performance.
Best movie I have seen in ages. Superb acting, interesting story, brilliant!
Excellent movie and great acting.
A very entertaining movie with great actors that lived up to all its hype!
A great tale and great performances from all the extraordinarily talented cast. Although slight changes were made from the actual events, it was a ripping rendition of a truth within our time. Bravo.
Fantastic Movie- Colin firth really plays hes role well, really good storyline didn't miss anything in it
movie not to be missed!
What a great movie. I loved this story and thought Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush were fantastic. Not to be missed.
