Not too mention, "The King's Speech" also reunites Firth with (P&P '95's Elizabeth Bennet), his co-star in the much-loved 1995 miniseries "Pride and Prejudice," plays Geoffrey Rush's character's Lionel Logue's wife. Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pierce, and Michael Gambon also co-star.

Here's a synopsis of...

The King’s Speech
director: Tom Hooper

The King’s Speech tells the story of the man who would become King George VI, the father of the current Queen, Elizabeth II. After his brother abdicates, George “Bertie” VI (Colin Firth) reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded nervous stammer and considered unfit to be King, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country into war. Jennifer Ehle co-stars. (via IndieWire)
