The King's Speech
I recently rewarded myself after completing several big projects in January by going to see The King's Speech on a weekday afternoon by myself, which was quite a treat. I like any movie with Colin Firth, and this one was no exception. The film has been nominated for 12 Academy Awards, so I can't wait to see how it does at the Oscars on February 27. It was a wonderful story and what made it even more enjoyable for me was that it is a true story. As my obsession with British royalty continues, I'm now looking for suggestions on any reading having to do with King George VI. You can hear one of his famous wartime speeches on YouTube.
