Twelve months ago, an invitation to watch a film about a stuttering king would have sounded like a joke. No one could have imagined that the reality of it would be so inspirational.Prince Albert (Firth), the Duke of York and second in line to the throne, suffers from a crippling stutter. In 1934, he finds himself in the middle of a royal crisis. With his father, King George V (Michael Gambon), nearing the end of his life, and his brother, the Prince of Wales (Guy Pearce), canoodling with an American divorcee, it seems that a great responsibility awaits.
