The King Has Something To Say

New DVD release


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.
