The King’s Speech tells of Bertie (brilliantly played by Colin Firth), who is sown in as King George VI of England, following the death of his father King George V and his brother, King Edward VIII’s scandalous abdication. The Country is on the verge of World War II and greatly seeks a leader – a man with a voice. The problem is Bertie languishes from a demoralizing speech impediment issue all his life so what chance does he have of leading the country. Given the help of his wife (Helena Bonham Carter) – the future queen mother and an unorthodox speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) he will conqueror this hurdle and deliver a speech that the people need to invigorate them. Unlike most period dramas of this nature the film has a visual charge attached to it, shot with some marvelous set pieces. The director really makes the interior space appear more like a psychological space which is very visually interesting. Literally director Tom Hooper makes two people in a room become a cinematic spectacle. Here are some set pieces from The King’s Speech.
