It was time to get out of the house. Mr FD and I were starting to just sit in silence and stare at each other. I started to imagine how good his head would look served up on a platter. So the Daughters descended and we went to the movies.
We went to watch the movie The King’s Speech . It was without doubt one of the best movies I have watched in a very long time. Colin Firth’s portrayal of King George VI and his battle to overcome his stutter was an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. He deserves a golden globe and an oscar if they really mean anything.
Geoffrey Rush was, for once, a real Australian; a thinking, intelligent professional with that Australian sense of humor we all know so well. Superb. Daughters were both in tears at the end, it was such an emotional ride with the poor King, and yet at other moments we were laughing out loud. Once the audience even applauded a scene!
Don’t wait for the dvd – go and watch The King’s Speech as soon as you can. You won’t be disappointed.
