The King's Speech
When God couldn't save The King, The Queen turned to someone who could.
Must remember to buy a pretty crown somewhere ...
This slice of British history has already garned a slew of awards and nominations, including 12 Oscar and 14 BAFTA nominations. Set in the period from 1925 to 1939, we follow the upheaval in the British royal family when the reigning king decided to abdicate because he wanted to marry a much-divorced American woman. His job passed to his younger brother, who was cursed with a stammer. His wife found an out-of-work Australian actor to coach the new king, leading to the momentous occasion when it became necessary to declare war against Hitler live on radio.
