I went to see The King's Speech the other day. Really enjoyed it. I came away with three things on my mind:
1. I had been so engrossed in the film that I didn't realise I had been sitting there for over two hours until the credits began to roll.
2. It's a simple story. A man – albeit the King – has a speech impediment. He hires an expert to help him overcome his difficulty. The chap cures him. Yet they managed to string it out for two hours. Now that's how to tell a story!
3. I remembered one line from the film. It went something like this - “You don't have to fear the things that scared you when you were five.” Which, thinking about it, could be what the film is all about. In fact, that could form the theme for a whole lot of stories.
