The King’s Speech    The King’s Speech movie was directed Tom Hooper and written by David Seidler.This British historical drama film which was released to the nationwide on 7 January 2011 and worldwide release on February 2011.This movie depicts about King George VI who has been suffering from stammering difficulty since young.After King George V’s death,King Edward VIII who was the elder brother of King George VI was crowned as the next King who will rule the reign.Since King Edward VIII was in love with two times divorced American woman,Wallis Simpson,hence the ruling responsibilities given to his younger brother,King George VI instead.Therefore,King George had to prepare himself by attending speech theraphy conducted by Australian born speech therapist,Lionel Logue.At a critical point,he has to declare a war between British and Nazi Germany on 1939 on live radio.Will he able to do so ? Will he able to create a everlasting trust in his people?       The main characters in this movie are King George VI played by Collin Firth,Geoffrey Rush as Lionel Logue,the speech therapist.Other than that,Gay Pearce as Edward VIII and Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother       The movie’s setting was based on the world of British Royals.Majority of the scenes in the movie displayed were in the Grand Royal Residence and consulting room of speech therapist in  at 146 Harley Street.This movie has been showing the era of 1930’s time zone.The costumes of the characters were very exquisite and royal based.        The central conflict of the movie,The King’s speech was mainly about his stammering problem.Whereas,another conflict also includes the King Edward VII who was reluctant to give up on his love.He ended up abdicating his power and authority as a king.    In terms of directing,the director had actually brought us to the 1930’s era which is truly mesmerizing.Due to that,we can imagine how the olden days are in United Kingdom.Each and every scene of the movie is realistic and authentic because it potrays the actual thing happened before in a delicate manner.The director has given his best by keeping us involved in the interesting storyline.We could feel the emotions and characters that has been potrayed magnificently.Well,there is no mistakes or messy shots in each scenes as his directing was extraordinary   As for the actors,they did their part and roles very well and amazingly coordinated.I would like to emphasize mainly on Colin Firth’s role on King George VI is truly astounding which proves him an excellent with top quality acting availability.He continuously potrayed the nervousness,restless,disappointment and unsatisfied expressions for his stammering problem without any glitch.For instance,when he was declaring the war between Britain and the Nazi’s,with confidence and he managed to overcome his fear in doing so.Other than that,Geoffrey Rush with his immensely touching and dedicated character.For example,in the coronation ceremony in Westminister Abbey,he acted very well in making the king realise his potential in speaking.     Next the cinematography was a topnotch for the movie.Majority of the scenes has closed camera which ultimately provides big potraits.The sets that he designed for the movie was simple and intriguing.For example,the consulting that has been used by Lionel Logue has ripped wallpaper which describes the warm and cozy environment.The background has indeed created a rough and warm atmosphere to avoid the boredom in the perspective of viewers.      Apart from that,the sceneries shown were very nice and pleasant.To be more specific,the scene where Regent’s park scene where the King and speech therapist would be arguing non-stop while catching up some air.The background effect in the scene is truly admirable as it shows some foggy environment with smog which creates a calm and cold environment.In creating the foggy environment,a big thums up to the special effects team or commonly known as SFX  in doing their part in recreating the scene.      The sountracks in the movie were incredibly matched perfectly with the of motive of the scenes.For example,when the king gave the war declaration speech in the recording room.At the beginning of the speech the instrumental sound was intense and ending part was smooth which creates a balanced sound.Throughout the movie,sound was not affecting the viewers greatly but it sure does create an impact on everyone who loves the British Royal genre music.        The strength of the movie is that,a public awareness about stammering has been created and how to overcome any difficulty such as stammering in certain situations.It really teach us that even the greatest man alive has a difficulty and to which he has to seek help from the less noble.So,social status is not given priority in this film.Whereas,the weakness of the movie is that the soundtrack which has been deeply not emphasized and I personally feel that it did not give any impacts on us viewers.In a nutshell,overall the movie has been very inspiring to the people who has difficuly or any dissablity.The characters in the film was given an equal opportunity and social status was not a big deal in the movie.For example,the king befriends a normal speech therapist who is not from the royals and managed to create a bond which is more than friendship.The movie also potrayed culture,attitude and dressing of the people in 1930’s era.Lastly,I would recommend this amazing movie to all my family and friends because of the equalily in respecting others message shown in the movie and I find this movie very admirable.Soundtrack should be more deeply connected to the scenes and that’s the only improvement.
