After the death of his father King George V (Michael Gambon) and the
scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII (Guy Pearce), Bertie (Colin
Firth) who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his
life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of England. With his country on
the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife, Elizabeth
(Helena Bonham Carter), the future Queen Mother, arranges for her
husband to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey
Rush). After a rough start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of
treatment and eventually form an unbreakable bond. With the support of
Logue, his family, his government and Winston Churchill (Timothy Spall),
the King will overcome his stammer and deliver a radio-address that
inspires his people and unites them in battle.
