Tom Hooper Verenigd Koninkrijk, 2010

Thomas Dods's rating of the film The King's Speech

Depicts a fascinating personal journey and brilliantly invoks the mood and history of the period. Tom Hooper provides exquisite direction and builds a momentum which results in a thrilling finale. The photography is also beautiful. It is very rewatchable and is one of those populist films which is so overplayed that people forget how well executed it really is.
