Movie Night #2 – The King’s Speech – Rated R
7:00 pm in the Gathering Room
Emmy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (John Adams) teams with screenwriter David Seidler to tell the story of King George VI. When his older brother abdicates the throne, nervous-mannered successor George “Bertie” VI (Colin Firth) reluctantly dons the crown. His stutter soon raises concerns about his leadership skills, King George VI eventually comes into his own with the help of unconventional speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Before long the king and Lionel have forged an unlikely bond, one that proves to have real strength when the United Kingdom is forced to flex its international might.
