It was (is) a great film

Earlier this week I saw this film again, and (like one of the original reviewers on IMDB) was blown away, again. 

The King's Speech (2010) has a wonderful script by David Seidler that takes only minor liberties with what actually happened, plus top-shelf acting from Firth, Rush, and Carter, and an inspiring message about courage. Even the film's stirring soundtrack suits the story perfectly.

On my second viewing, I also had truly marvelous company.
