The King's Speech is a 2010 historical drama directed by Tom Hooper and written by David Seidler which won four Oscars and was nominated for an additional eight. Colin Firth plays King George VI who, to cope with a stammer, sees Lionel Logue, an Australian speech therapist played by Geoffrey Rush. The men become friends as they work together, and after his brother abdicates the throne, the new King relies on Logue to help him make a radio broadcast on Britain's declaration of war on Germany in 1939.
