    Has anyone seen this movie? My mom and I had girls night last night and just loved this movie. Two thumbs up from us.

    Colin Firth is one of my favourite actors ever. I haven't seen The King's Speech yet, but it's on my list. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

    It was wonderful. Heartbreaking, funny, stressful, quirky all at once.
    My neck and jaw were so tense at the end, you would have thought I had fought the stammer with him.
    Did you notice the Diana ring" on the Queen Mother character?
    Definitely worth seeing. Colin Firth was remarkable and I always loved the australian actor who played the speech coach(can't remember his name)

    Fran....you are thinking of Geoffrey Rush.... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1504320/ He played this understated role to a T, I thought; so different from his usual roles.

    I saw the movie last weekend and was exhausted at the end. I was also exhilarated. Run, don't walk, to the theater. Colin deserves to make an awards show-sweep this year. Perfection.

    I'll see if I can get husband to come with me tomorrow or Saturday. I love Colin Firth, and the rest of the cast sounds great.

    LOVED it! Saw it twice, can't wait to go again.
    GREAT acting by Rush and Firth. I loved them both. SO real, and it would have been all too easy to make it silly or overdone.

    Thank you for posting about this movie. It sounds wonderful. Plus, I have been a huge Colin Firth fan since Pride and Prejudice.
