  • ""Grande-Bretagne, années 1930. Albert, le duc de York, souffre d'un grave problème d'élocution. Tous les traitements reconnus étant restés sans effet, son épouse Elizabeth fait appel à l'Australien Lionel Logue, un thérapeute aux méthodes singulières fondées sur la psychothérapie. Une fois oubliée la désastreuse première rencontre, Albert se met en devoir de suivre avec assiduité les leçons de Logue. Ce dernier devient au fil des mois son confident, son complice, voire son conseiller, lorsque la désastreuse administration de son frère Edward VIII, qui a succédé sur le trône à leur père George V, plonge le royaume dans le scandale et la tourmente. L'assurance acquise auprès de Logue permettra à Albert de succéder à son frère, lorsque celui-ci abdiquera par amour pour une Américaine divorcée." [(c) Médiafilm]."
  • ""The King's Speech" presents a sideways glance at a crucial period in 20th-century history--as the monumentally awkward Prince Albert, or Bertie, becomes King George VI unexpectedly in 1936 when his older brother Edward VIII abdicates to marry American divorcée Wallis Simpson. In imperial Britain between the wars, that was problem enough, but Bertie suffered from a chronic stammer that made his public appearances painful for everyone. In an age of radio, the monarch has become a symbol, which means that the King speaks to his people--regularly. Bertie and his wife, the high-spirited Princess Elizabeth find their way to an Australian-born speech therapist and amateur actor named Lionel Logue. Logue isn't a doctor, has no academic credentials, and is viewed by proper authorities as a charlatan. Oddly enough, each of these men is a desperate misfit badly in need of a new friend and a bit more self-esteem. A real friend, it seems, was exactly the medicine the future king required."@en

  • "Award-winning drama from director Tom Hooper telling the story of the relationship formed between King George VI (Colin Firth, in a Golden Globe and Oscar-winning performance) and his speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush).
