Trailer: The King's Speech

Saw this at its LFF Gala screening last week and enjoyed it enormously. Certainly, on occasion, it's perhaps a tad too TV in its stylistic approach but the performances — Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter et al — are spot on, the script manages to be both humorous and moving, and director Tom Hooper keeps the whole thing bubbling along nicely and always on the right side of schmaltz. Expect the film — and Firth, especially — to figure in the forthcoming awards season onslaught.
