...(I hope) The King's Speech. Hubby and I ventured out in the cold last night to see Mr. Darcy (I mean Colin Firth) do a splendid job of portraying King George VI. What a great movie. I have to say though I was a little perplexed with comments I heard from the audience as we were leaving the theatre ("wasn't that the actress in Harry Potter" (huh, why not focus on her performance as Elizabeth), "so when did this all happen"? etc). Hubby had to gently remind me that both of us, being brought up by British parents who lived through this period in time, had a much more thorough education in the history behind the movie. And Guy Pearce as King Edward VIII was bang on. One can only imagine if he had not abdicated how different the war might have turned out (frightening). Anyway, this got two big thumbs up in our household - we will be glued to the Telly tonight to see how it does. Definetly a contender for the Oscars - if you get a chance go see it!
