In 1939, King George VI, makes a public speech, but because of his stuttering the event ends in ridicule. And since it is the radio era, many of the British listen at homes to the speeches of the king. Older brother of George, Edward, was suppose to become a King of England, but after marriage with Mrs. Simpson he had to give up the throne. Then George was forced to takeover and decided to overcome his stuttering. His wife supports him in any way, she finds a diction teacher, an unfulfilled actor, who uses rather unusual methods. Their meetings often end up in arguments and returns, but it really is a story of true friendship and cooperation.

King George VI also deserves credit for his attitude during World War II - he and his family did not leave London and transmitted by radio appeals to his subjects that would give them encouragement. For that he gained great respect and affection of the British.

The film is based on facts, received 4 deservedly Oscars and many other awards and nominations. A little old-fashioned style, for it contains a lot of interesting and witty dialogue. Very good performance from the actors gives the film a historical authenticity.
