I can't stop crying ever since I watch the wartime speech by the King,
with Lionel by his side. Every sound the King pronounces, every blink
and every smile Lionel does, rightly touch every string of my heart: how
great their friendship is and how hard they have been trying!
This movie might show some hints on early education of a person.
The music in this film is of my appetite, I love those pieces very much, can't believe they didn't win the Oscar this year.

The King's speech is a wonderful film about George VI (whose brother gives up the Kingdom for a woman) and his speech therapist Lionel Logue.On the eve of world war II, Hitler's ambition is so apparent that people can even smell the smoke of gunpowder, while at this time Edward--Bertie's brother leaves the interests of his country behind, but puts all his energy on the love affair with Mrs.Simpson, and even abdicates for her.As a result, Duke York is pushed onto the throne reluctantly.However, as a stammer who grows up in the shadow of his father and brother, Bertie has a big problem of giving a speech in front of the microphone, yet which is vital for a King.Fortunately, Queen Elizabeth finds a very special therapist Logue for Bertie, and through a series of training, things are starting to change for the better.At the end of this film, George VI gives an inspiring speech to his country, which perfectly encourages soldiers and England people.
To be or not to be, this is a question---to live intensively and richly, or merely to exist, that depends on ourselves.Without the crown, Bertie is just an ordinary person who is bad tempered and becomes a stammer because of an unhappy childhood.But I am deeply touched by his obsession when he tells a story for his girls, how I wish I could give him a hand at that time, but I can't.Actually, what makes him shoulder the responsibility successfully during that crisis is not his talent or something like that, but exactly, his obsession and bravery to challenge himself.As a stammer, he chooses to change, to live intensively and richly as a real King, not merely to exist and hide from his own flaws, just as he shouts, "I have a voice!I have a right to be heard!".Just as Lionel says"This fellow would be somebody great, he is just afraid of his own shadow." Bertie does deserve to be somebody great, instead of being buried in his own dark world and struggling for light.
Logue: What was your earliest memory?
King George VI: I'm not... -here to discuss... -personal matters.
Lionel Logue: Why are you here then?
King George VI: Because I bloody well stammer!

Most often, we should learn from Bertie.When compared with others, we
often feel ashamed of our own disadvantages and sometimes jealous of
other people's flame, while few realize that in fact, the biggest enemy
is ourselves.What we need to do is not defeating others, but challenging
yourself, in other words, to be a better you.Don't be afraid of
failures, after all, life is a tour of experiencing ups and downs.When
at the bottom of a valley, doesn't that mean every following step is
toward the top?As long as the present you is "richer" than the old you,
give yourself a warm smile and say out aloud, "I made it!".Never let
others look down to you, not even yourself.
What impressed me most in this movie is the friendship between Bertie and Lionel.There's no denying that we all have a friend who lights up our life and always be there for us when in need, with whom we form deeply sentimental attachments, not so much for social status as for a kind of mutual discovery of each other's and our own inner life.Lionel is not just a therapist, but such kind a friend for Bertie.At first, Bertie is not kind to Lionel and even tries to push him away, but as they know each other more, these two men begin to fall into step and Bertie's faith in his own voice is intensified as well.Finally, Bertie even treats Lionel as his family member to let him sit in his King's Box.
The war speech Bertie represents at the end of this movie is like a paper he hands in to his country after so long a time's hard work, which means a real King is born.Under the perfect cooperation of Beethoven's seventh symphony, people from different classes appear slowly with the same calm and peaceful smile, no fear, no anger, just bravery.I cannot help but clapping hands for Bertie and his beloved country.
Myrtle Logue: Will their Majesties be staying for dinner?
Queen Elizabeth: We would love to, such a treat, but alas... a previous engagement. What a pity.
King George VI: [Logue is sitting on the coronation throne] Get up!
Y-you can't sit there! GET UP!
Lionel Logue: Why not? It's a chair.
King George VI: T-that... that is Saint Edward's chair.
Lionel Logue: People have carved their names on it.
Over and over again, we have tried to find a peaceful way out of the differences between ourselves and those who are now our enemies; but it has bee in vain.
The task will be hard. There may be dark days ahead, and war can no longer be confined to the battlefield, but we can only do the right as we see the right, and reverently commit our cause to God. If one and all we keep resolutely faithful to it, ready for whatever service or sacrifice it may demand, then with God's help, we shall prevail.
Lilibet: What's he saying? [watching a clip of Hitler speaking]
King George VI: I don't know but... he seems to be saying it rather well.
But far more than this, the peoples of the world would be kept in bondage of fear, and all hopes of settled peace and of security, of justice and liberty, among nations, would be ended.
