The King's Speech
The yummy Colin Firth portraying King George VI in The King's Speech.
John and I went to see this movie last night and it was absolutely wonderful!! I think it is the best movie I have seen this year! I know it is only January, but another movie would have to be pretty darn good to top this one! I love Colin Firth's acting and he isn't hard on the eyes either (LOL!!) and Helena Bonham Carter was very good as the Queen Mother-Queen Elizabeth I . Geoffrey Rush was just phenomenal in his role as Lionel Logue.
The story line is this:
The story of King George VI of Britain, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it.
Colin Firth playing King George VI and Helena Bonham Carter playing the Queen Mother in The King's Speech.
Geoffrey Rush as Lionel Logue
There is so much more to this story than that short little line above that I found on line! You just felt very good after you left this movie. So get up and go see this wonderful film!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
