The King's Speech

screencaps courtesy Lady Bluelake

I went to see the King's Speech on Saturday, and I absolutely adored it. In my opinion definitely worth the hype. All the characters were perfectly cast, I can totally see why Colin Firth got the golden globe and all the other award nods, but I think Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush definitely deserve equal praise. I just love Helena Bonham Carter - she can go from the perfect refined English Lady to Crazy Goth Lady in but a few short minutes! Did you see her Golden Globe Outfit? Every best/worst dressed list I've seen so far has said, 'Yeah, she looks insane, but we just love her so damn much we don't care!' 

I concur!

I'm so excited about this film - can't wait to see it!

She does look insane, but i kinda like that she's different. And what a talented actress.

I saw the King's Speech a few weeks ago and I love it, it was far better than I expected it would be. I thought both Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter were great in it but I absolutely hated Helena Bonham Carter's Golden Globe look. It was too far out for me especially the mismatched shoes.

I really want to go and see this! I'm really curious about it because it's been doing so well.

I soooo want to see this. Tried to see it on Sat, but was having lunch with a friend and the film wasn't showing til 5pm. We didn't want to hang around that long so saw Blue Valentine instead - it's brilliant but depressing! xx

mmm i love it when HBC's in costume. She does eccentricity very well, but I love her in other costumes too. might go and see the film tomorrow :D

Claire said...

ohhh, i really want to watch this film! I refuse to watch it online because you can tell that an HQ version will have that lovely war time colour tone..


Ashley said...

Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter can really do no wrong in my eyes. Her outfit at the Globes was fantassstic! She's too cool for all that fashion crap anyway ;) But really, I can't wait to see this movie. I need to get on that.

Went to see this at the weekend and LOVED it! Knew I would as I love Colin Firth (completely besotted!!) but I actually came away thinking that Geoffrey Rush deserved most praise as his portrayal of his character actually moved me to tears! Sad, I know!! Haha!

Krissy said...

Oh gosh, I want to see this movie so badly! My nana and her husband went to see if over Christmas and told me I'd love it. And I definitely believe them (and everyone else who's raved)! Now to find someone to go with me... That's always the tricky part.

I absolutely loved the film. Colin Firth was just perfect, and you're right, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush were brilliant too. I really hope it goes on winning awards throughout "award season". Helena's style is just utterly bonkers but brilliant at the same time.
