  • 'The King's Speech' borders on perfection

    “The King’s Speech”
    Rated R for some language
    Release date: Dec. 10, 2010
    Runtime: 118 minutes
    Rating: Five out of five take slates


    “The King's Speech” had a limited release at the end of 2010 and has now made it to Elizabethtown theaters. My recommendation is to see it and then see it again.

    This film is phenomenal.
