Watched the movie last night. It's fantastic. A bit sappy, sentimental, cutesy (the therapist pissed me off) and strained. But powerful nonetheless. It's a feel-good movie, not the type of movie that will be remembered for decades, but a movie that makes you feel damn good while your watching it. It's a real crowd pleaser, intertwining the battle between HRHKG and his stutter and the war between England and the Nazis (let 'em burn). The final scene is very moving, and the sensation you get when watching it on the large screen, with the music (Mozart) timed perfectly to the speech, is powerful indeed.
The movie made me nostalgic for the types of rulers the world used to have. Seeing his royalty, the affection of his subjects and the responsibility he felt towards them, I couldn't help but think that I'd have been a redcoat in 1776. British monarchy>American democracy.
