The King's Speech

I have a huge pile of unwatched DVD's in the house including five series of The Wire (watched 1
one so far), a Being Human box set and The Complete BBC Shakespeare (watched three so far). Anyway I finally got round to reducing the pile slightly by watching The King's Speech tonight (well actually it came with a free DVD of 'The Madness of King George' and I've never seen that so actually the pile hasn't physically shrunk at all!)
I really enjoyed this film, excellent performances from the leads, Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter, and beautifully shot, although Guy Pearce as Edward never really convinced me. Glad I finally invested the time in watching it.
