"Timing Isn't My Strong Suit"

The King's Speech (2010)
Dir - Tom Hooper

Sad I waited until after the Oscars to see this, but glad I saw it in the theater. Really great film. I see why it won Best Picture. Very award-like. Wonderful story, score, acting and cinematography. This film is even more special knowing how much the story meant to the writer, 73 year-old David Seidler. How he wrote to the Queen Mother asking permission and waited until her death, per her request, before going ahead with any production. I found it inspiring but I can see why those who have suffered from a stutter, or other speech impediment, get a lot more out of the film.
