The King's Speech Finally Shows in Manila This May

Rolling Stone Magazine hails it as “a crowning achievement powered by a dream cast” while Variety calls it “a stirring, handsomely mounted tale of unlikely friendship”. Indeed, “It's a rare combination of crowd-pleaser and triumphant artistry” attests the Wall Street Journal. After worldwide acclaim since its American debut last November, “The King's Speech” will finally make its Philippine run starting on May 11, exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas (Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 3 and Trinoma). The toast of last February's Academy Awards, “The King's Speech” won four major Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director (Tom Hooper), Best Actor (Colin Firth) and Best Original Screenplay (David Seidler), while cast members Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham-Carter earned nominations in supporting actor categories.

Based on the true story of King George VI, “The King's Speech” follows the Royal Monarch's quest to find his voice. In the film, after the death of his father King George V (Michael Gambon) and the scandalous abdication of Prince Edward VII's (Guy Pearce), Prince Albert (Colin Firth) who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of England. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife, Elizabeth (Bonham Carter), arranges for her husband to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). After a rough start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of treatment and eventually form an unbreakable bond.
