Last night my wife and I had a chance to see a sneak preview of a movie coming out at Thanksgiving. It's called "The King's Speech," starring Colin Firth, and it may be the best film I've seen in years. As we were watching, I blurted out my prediction that we were watching Best Actor nomination and Best Supporting Actor nomination (Geoffrey Rush) performances. It's about Queen Elizabeth II's father, King George VI, who was forced to take the throne when his brother abdicated to marry an American woman. The new King had a crippling speech impediment, and sought treatment. It is superbly written, directed, shot and acted--and I can't recommend it highly enough. You'll be seeing a lot of advance publicity--you'll want to research the history of it after seeing the movie, but please see this movie. As the old Hollywood rags used to put it, remember, folks...you heard it here first.
Back to today's non-fiction: As we start another week, we hope you can join us.
