This historical drama, which follows England’s King George VI (Colin Firth) and his struggle with a speech impediment, is genial and uplifting. With the help of an unconventional therapist (Geoffrey Rush), King George finds the courage to face the most important public speech of his life. The R rating is misleading, arising from a scene in which the King literally curses the speech impediment that has plagued him most of his life. It's humorous rather than vulgar, and in line with the picture’s theme of personal redemption. (Weinstein)
