The King's Speech teaser

I guess this is better than nothing. I would really like to see a full trailer, since the film and cast generated raves from the Telluride Film Festival this past week. If anyone is unfamilar with the backstory to this film, The King's Speech tells the story of the man who became King George VI (Colin Firth), the father of Queen Elizabeth II. After his brother abdicates, George ("Bertie") reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded stutter and considered unfit to be king, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Through a set of unexpected techniques (including diaphragmatic breathing ), and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country into war.
Directed by Tom Hooper ( John Adams, The Damn United ) also starring Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce, Michael Gambon, Timothy Spall, Derek Jacobi and Jennifer Ehle.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
