T is for Touched

I rented the "The King's Speech" ; if you haven't seen it...you really should. I know you may think stuffy, based on the True Story of King George VI. It won awards for a reason; it unites the common bond of fear, friendship and the amazing feat of perseverance.  It reminds us the task will be hard, the test, the tears and the torture a soul can endure. He had a temper, but through training and being tested....You just have to see it!

It may trigger a time you had to over come an obstacle; it may cause tucked away emotions to service. Trials n 'tribulations sometimes allow gifts to appear.

Take the time to watch a film that celebrates the human spirit; the acting was terrific, too~

I'm really looking forward to seeing that film! Happy Easter, Ellie! :o)
Jessica Bell said…
OR Ella rather! *blush* :o)
I enjoyed the movie for all the reasons you mentioned. I really admired the photography and the authenticity of the sets and costumes. Period pieces are so well-done now. One fine example is "Elizabeth" with Cate Blanchett -- out of this world.

The King's Speech is at the top of my Netflix's list. I would've gone to see it in theaters, but it didn't come to my town. We were too small I guess. I definitely can't wait to see it though.

Happy Easter.

Haven't seen it yet, but like M.J., it sits at the top of my Netflix list, and I'm itching to see it. Especially since I work with a guy who has yet to overcome his stuttering, I'm interested to see what ol' George goes through.

Loved this movie.

I watched it last night, and the acting is superb - all the nuances. Colin Firth did a great job and the man who played his friend was amazing too.
That movie was a masterpiece in every aspect! I was so routing for Colin Firth to win!

Thanks for the recommendation, I've heard the reviews but wasn't able to watch it yet. Obstacles could sometimes help us when they help us gain more strength and be better persons than we once were. ;)

Hi Ellie, not seen this one yet, heard it was good as well. Hope your having a blessed Easter..:) Amandax
glad you liked the film, Ella. In today's world where immature fanboys dictate the trend of violent gory and overly dark movies with inappropriate aggression, we need more films like this one, with powerful messages and responsible approach to society and audience.

It was a spectacular film, indeed. Of course, I have been in love with Colin Firth for years, so even without the wonderful story, I would have enjoyed it...LOL.

I loved the whole look of the film...costumes, sets...and thought the young girls were perfect as Elizabeth and Margaret. Thank goodness movies like this are still made!
