A great cast and an interesting historical storey is well dramatized in this oscar buzz movie.


[ 6:00 EATS
If you need to eat before the movie, The Stone Oven is a great self service establishment. Great sandwiches, salads, etc. Service is fast. Group members usually sit at the high tables in the middle. It is about a 5 minute walk to the theater, so leave around 10 minutes prior to the start of the movie to meet the rest of the group in the lobby.

7:00 ishMOVIE
Meet at the ENTRANCE DOOR 5 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterward outside the entrance door in the lobby.

AFTER MOVIE DISCUSSION
Jimmy's, at 2195 Lee, is a block left of the theater and is expecting us afterward for coffee, beer and beet cake.

DESCRIPTION
The King's Speech" is based on the true story of the Queen of England's father and his remarkable friendship with maverick Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue. King George VI unexpectedly becomes King when his brother Edward abdicates the throne. Logue is the man who helps the King find a voice with which to lead the nation into war. The King's Speech (2010) delves deep into the relationship between two men: one a common man and the other a royal by exploring the romance of true friendship. As a result we are implored to invest ourselves emotionally in the films story. With The King's Speech, Director Tom Hooper brings to life the work of gifted writer David Seidler who himself has some personal experience invested in telling the story of King George VI as he has himself dealt with a stammer and is aware of the hardships that brings. Seidler's story is woven in a way that generates true empathy for the plight of its characters and as a result Hooper had to employ a strong cast that were capable of giving their best performances when playing such important roles, and that he did.

The film traces the turbulent and painful accession to the throne of King George VI (Colin Firth) or Bertie as his speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) so fondly referred to him, and reveals the difficult decisions and moments he faced on that journey. We are introduced to Bertie as he gives a nervous, stammer filled speech at Wembley stadium on behalf of his father King George V at the closing of the British Empire Exhibition on October the 31st, 1925. After trying to cure his stammer by using some ridiculous methods his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) introduces him to Logue, a speech therapist known for producing great results. The relationship that develops between Logue and Bertie provides moments of sweet, light hearted banter that intersperses the moments of intense drama to great affect. Tom Hooper's focus on the unique relationship between a man of royalty and a man of hard working values provides us with a strong narrative, but it is the humorous and dramatic unfolding of their friendship that makes for such powerful drama and great comedy.

A free parking lot is on Edgewood road, one block west of Lee road at Cedar.

NOTE TO FIRST TIME GOERS: If this is your first movie with the group, there is no fee to attend.

This group has been successful partly because members have a genuine interest in meeting fellow independent movie goers. We don't always know where to look for you, especially first timers.

We have multiple meeting places: 1. Entrance door to the movie in the theater hallway 5-10 minutes before the movie starts, 2. By the Marquee (or entrance door) after the movie, or 3. Reserved table at a restaurant under the name "Movie Group".

We don't always sit together in the movie theater but if you see a bunch of people talking about good movies they have seen, it is probably us. Please join in. We are always happy to get new people involved.

NOTE TO ALL: In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.
