More scenes from "The King's Speech" have been shared in new clips. One shows the Queen Mother who asks Lionel Logue to help her husband to overcome his nervous stammer and the other two follow the King's training session with the speech therapist which is more like a casual conversation than public speaking practice.
Portraying Queen Elizabeth, Helena Bonham Carter recently told Coming Soon that "it's hard." She added, "You have a responsibility. Also to everybody else, because there's so many people who know her and have a perception of her, so you're sort of treading on semi-sacred ground, but having said that, everyone tends to remember the Queen Mother in her latter years. It never occurs to them that the Queen Mother had a youth."
Based on true story, "The King's Speech" revolves around King George VI (Bertie) who assumes the throne after his brother, who is infatuated by a woman, abdicates. Plagued by a dreaded stutter and considered unfit to be king, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue. Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country into war.
Colin Firth plays King George VI, sharing screen with Geoffrey Rush who takes the role of Lionel Logue. Tom Hooper directs the drama, which has been touted as Oscar contender. The movie will get limited U.S. release on November 26.
