Don't wait any longer.
It is based on the true story of King George VI (father of the current Queen Elizabeth). He struggled/suffered his whole life with a stammer. This movie tells the story of how his wife found him help and a friend through a speech therapist. And how it changed the world (is that too dramatic ? ).
And you can totally ignore that rating. Pointless really. Here is a great little article on why ratings are lame and not the best way to determine what movies you will spend your time on.
The whole movie deserves every award it is nominated for. Amazing and talented cast. Powerful and inspiring story.
Other things I Loved:
The relationship between Albert/King George VI and his wife the Queen
She shows such sweet Support and Love throughout the hardship of his stammer and becoming King.
Perseverance and Courage
Great Friendship and Forgiveness
I also saw Midway to Heaven. It is a fun, cheesy, tearful film and worthy of some support. And I loved going to the premiere. It was fun to see the cast and be a part of the excitement for them. Although not the biggest fan of the Bachelor's Michelle Money. Thanks for a little hook up from Hilary and Aimee Weeks. Hilary's music was featured in the movie. Well done Hilary.
