The Social Network is a lot more better than this one.

The King's Speech tells the story of King George VI (Colin Firth) who, to overcome his stammer, sees Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), an Australian speech therapist. The two become friends as they work together, and after his brother Edward VIII abdicates, the new king relies on Logue to help him make a radio broadcast on the day that Britain declared war on Germany, beginning of World War II. The film won the Best Picture category from the previous Academy Awards.
This film is very neat and heartwarming. The chemistry between Firth and Rush made the film even a lot more complex and imaginable. It is very unique that no film can do a piece of brilliantly made masterpiece. Tom Hooper directs the film perfectly that he knows what audiences can feel or expect to the film. The film is a good example of Drama with a little humor in it.

Colin Firth as King George VI is brilliant. He did a great job in this film. You can feel the sadness and anger of his character and what made me like about his character is that I almost can relate with that trait. I am shy a bit and I have problems speaking in front of people. Geoffrey Rush is a tremendous actor in this film. I love the chemistry between him and Firth and I think that's why the film becomes more better. Helena Bonham Carter also did an good performance, she did a different role rather than his goth, dark-type girl that pops out in our mind whenever we see her. So, yeah, every single actor and actresses did a great job in this film.
The script is brilliant that I love to listen in every single word and dialogue in this film. The story is unpredictable and that's the main reason why this film is special. The award for the Best Picture category is expected to this film but i'm still gonna be more happy if The Social Network wins the award for the Oscars.

I have my own DVD copy of the film and i'm willing to watch it again.

The geek rates it 7.8/10. Performance is great. Direction, Cinematography, Score and Script is good so, I'll see you next time for another review.
