The King’s Speech

Okay, yes, we will admit it: we at Arthur are susceptible to Oscar Bait. We love a good film, especially a film that endeavors to be good. (Though we also appreciate a film that doesn’t endeavor at all.) And so here we have The King’s Speech, which is apparently about some king (we say “some king” because we’re Americans and we only bother knowing some of our Presidents) who struggles to give speeches and then, after a montage or two, some back steps, and, because this is a British film, a heart-to-heart in an English garden, triumphs and all is well. And even though we’ll be sarcastic about a film like this, we’ll enjoy it all the same.
