The King's Speech is a powerful story

5 second plot: King George VI of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland couldn't speak in public without stammering. This had a big influence on his self-confidence. One day he meets a speech therapist who is convinced he can help him. His methods are unconventional but seem to be working.

5 second review: There is a great storyteller at work here. If you look at the title and the summary it looks extremely boring, but the movie is completely the opposite. It's an exciting, uplifting story about persistence and friendship. And it's a great look behind the scenes of the royal family at the brink of World War II.
