The King's Speech was this year's Best Picture Oscar winner and award season darling. The film is more personal than its title might immediately suggest--it's not about the rousing speech King George VI gave to his country on the brink of World War II. The real battle here is internal: The king of Britain, leader of a nation about to face one of the darkest points in history, has a stutter.
The film was lauded for the strength of its performances and the intimacy felt by audiences, despite a small budget and high-profile characters. For many, this DVD has been eagerly awaited so that it could be watched again and again.
