The King's Speech

Superb drama of courage and humanity

    – An inspiring story about one man's quest to overcome a
  speech impediment to lead his nation.

“Because I have a right to be heard. I have a voice!” This is a quote from The King’s Speech, which was released in 2010 and was a major box office and critical success.

The King decides to choose a lucky man Logue as his therapist, where he and his wife both insist that Logue focuses only on physical exercises.
