Kings Speech tells the story of the man who would become King George V1, father of Queen Elizabeth 11. After his brother abdicates, to marry the lady Simpson, George (Colin Firth) reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a speech stammer and considered by some to be unfit king, he engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Through a set of techniques, and an unlikely friendship, George is able to find his voice and lead the country through war.
