First Look: Geoffrey Rush, Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter in a scene from 'The King's Speech'
Watch a new clip from the early Oscar favorite
One of the most buzzed about and adored films at this past weekend's Telluride Film Festival was Tom Hooper's 'The King's Speech." Set predominantly in the 1930's, the film tells the tale of Prince Albert (Colin Firth) and how his speech impediment (ie, stutter), was a dramatic hurdel for him to overcome before and after his brother King Edward abdicated the throne making him the unexpected King.
Albert, who became King George VI, was ushered by his wife (Helena Bonham Carter) to see a relatively little known Australian speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). This was the last stop after countless other options and doctors had been seen to try and fix his problem. In this brand new clip released by The Weinstein Company today, Albert has returned to work with Logue after initially being skeptical of his quirky technique. Logue notes Albert has both mental and mechanical difficulties and they immediately get to work, with his wife lending a bum, er hand, as well.
Check out the charming preview embedded in this post and see why "The King's Speech" may be a true Oscar contender. For more on "Speech," check out my review from Telluride.
"The King's Speech" opens on Nov. 26.
