...Timing isn't my strong suit.

The King's Speech (2010)

Chosen by me as I like to go to the cinema a lot.
The King's Speech is everything you've probably heard in the rave reviews it seems to be getting. Extremely well played, Firth is excellent, it's funny, even gripping in it's own way.
And yet the whole thing can't help but repulse me. The idea a King represents the voice of a people (even if begrudgingly and sympathetically as shown here) is absolutely abhorrent. It just turns my stomach.
