Of the three movies I consider the best of last year, this is one of them. I just saw it today. Amazing movie. I have to confess to a love of films about Royals. But this is one of the best movies I’ve seen in awhile. It’s the true story of the current Queen’s dad, how he was a stutterer who assumed the throne when his brother abdicated in the 1930s. He couldn’t speak publicly, yet he had to. The age of mass media had begun. So the hired a speech therapist who helped him learn to talk properly. It’s a surprisingly interesting and powerful film. I highly recommend it.
My other two picks of best movies of last year are True Grit, a masterpiece. And the Social Network. The Fighter was also really good but I wouldn’t put it in the top three.
