|aka The Duke's Speech for 3/4 of the movie....|
The film centers around Britain's Prince Albert, Duke of York, played masterfully by Colin Firth, who secretly struggles to overcome a debilitating speech impediment while his family and country titer on the brink of collapse prior to the start of the Second World War. Albert's wife, portrayed by Helena Bonham Carter, enlists the aid of an unconventional speech therapist, Geoffrey Rush's character Lionel, to help her husband with his "stammer."
