THE KING'S SPEECH


When King Edward VIII vacated the British throne to marry his divorced, commoner sweetheart, his younger brother, George VI (the current queen’s father), suddenly found himself in power. But there was one small problem: a speech impediment. How he resolved it is the theme of this classy production starring Colin Firth as George and Geoffrey Rush as his loyal speech therapist, Lionel Logue.

Jack Nicholson, who earned two of his three Oscars working with Brooks (“Terms of Endearment,” “As Good as It Gets”) co-stars.
