The film is fabulous.
Not only a fascinating telling of a story, but beautiful to look at, and a film that makes me, who is not a monarchist, actually have some sympathy for the people who inhabit that strange world of 'being royal'.
Not overly long, with an ending that brings a smile to the lips and a hint of a tear to the eye (was that just me?) every performance was spot-on.
Of course, Colin Firth is WAY too good looking to play Bertie and let's face it Helena Bonham Carter is incredibly beautiful, so thinking of her as the Queen muvver is stretching it a bit, and the very beautiful Jennifer Ehle made me think of Meryl Streep.....and Mr Rush is great as Lionel.
Wish men and women still wore the sort of clothes worn during that time (although with my cankles the dumpy shoes would perhaps not be great) as suits on men, with hats, and fox furs and fabulous dresses on the ladies, looked so gorgeous.
Anyway....go...see what you think.....
