The film was about King George VI's stammer and how he overcame it with the help of his speech therapist Lionel. And, I have to add that the actors/actresses chosen for this film were definitely the right choice. Colin Firth gave a brilliant performance as the King and the amazing Helena Bonham Carter as his wife Queen Elizabeth, mother of the currently reigning Queen Elizabeth II. Not forgetting Geoffery Rush who played Lionel the speech therapist was superb too! (I can't believe how different he looks in this film to his other famous character Captain Barbossa in the Pirates of the Caribbean!) It was honestly such a good film and I was surprised how much I enjoyed but then again I do love my history!
This morning I finished a brilliant book 'Sister' by Rosamund Lupton which you may have seen in my sidebar. I won't give any spoilers but this book was written in such an intelligent, creative way with so many twists and turns you don't find out the real truth until the last few pages. It was really good and recommend it to you all if you love reading and will be able to stick with the storyline as it goes back between past and present quite frequently. My next book I'm about to read is 'The Other Boleyn Girl' by Philippa Greggory which I'm looking forward to like I said before I do love history!
Hope you all had a great weekend, what have you done?
