The King's SpeechDVD - 2011
From Library Staff
I adored this historical depiction of the reluctant man with a speech impediment who would be King.

In SAVING MR. BANKS you'll be treated to the true story of how Mary Poppins almost didn't get made into a film due to P.L. Travers' interpersonal struggles. Similarly, in THE KING'S SPEECH, you will be enchanted with the real story behind how a reluctant King of England became worthy of his throne.
From the critics
AgeAdd Age Suitability
ReadingintheCorner thinks this title is suitable for 14 years and over
Coarse Language: There is quite a bit of coarse language but it isn't used against anyone. It is simply stated...it makes sense in context nevertheless be prepared as it comes up every once in a while.
Coarse Language: Lionel encourages Berty to swear, let the anger out and especially at one point there is ALOT of swearing. Sometimes Berty will be practicing reading and break out in the F word or the S word, it's kinda weird and semi-desterbing but it's still a good movie.
