Quick Review #2: The King's Speech

OK here we go, second one in what I hope to keep up with as an ongoing series.

Tom Hooper's The King's Speech is a brilliant movie, absolutely 100% character driven and man is it ever a good ride. Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush do a fantastic job with their characters and their chemistry is definitely Oscar worthy. I also want to give a quick nod to the Danny Cohen (DoP) and whoever cut the soundscape. The cinematography was brilliant, I caught myself being very impressed with choices of framing and use of space many times throughout. I'm going to have to watch it again and really pay attention now that I know the plot.
