‘The King’s Speech’ leads Oscar nominations
British film gets 12 nods from the Academy
January 25, 2011

“The King’s Speech leads the nominations for this year’s Academy Awards with 12 nods, including one for Best Film and Best Actor for Colin Firth. The nominations were announced today (January 25)…”

And…description of the movie at The Guardian UK:

“Tom Hooper’s drama, about George VI’s struggles to overcome a stutter on the eve of the second world war”

Kimberly writes: I truly enjoyed the movie, “The King’s Speech”. It displayed a lot of lessons about being a teacher, and about being a team supporting someone with a disability. It is also a celebration of finding confidence and of overcoming a disability. I guess it has a “Moses” element, of someone thinking they can’t be the leader, but finding the courage, anyway. I have always admired Colin Firth and his acting. Colin Firth truly dazzled in this movie. If you enjoyed this film, I would also recommend that you watch the “The Lost Prince” (2005, on video at many libraries). “The Lost Prince is the story of “The King’s” brother, Prince John, who died of epilepsy at the age of 13 years old. In “The King’s Speech”, Colin Firth’s character mentions his lost brother, John.
