The King’s Speech: PG-13 version will be out this weekend

There is some controversy about the way this was done. The movie, “The King’s Speech” is a wonderful exploration of how people overcome problems, disabilities, and fear of success.

Regardless of the controversy, I think this film is well worth seeing. – KW
