It should come as no surprise that Dustin Hoffman would eventually step behind the camera. After all, he’s an actor noted for depth, intelligence and an intuitiveness perfectly suited to working with others in order to bring the best out of them.   

The King's Speech (Review)

Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush deliver stirring exchanges in period drama

Colin Firth, hot off his Academy Award-nominated turn last year in A Single Man, returns to period work as King George VI, the father of currently reigning Queen Elizabeth. Bertie, as he was known among the royal family, was the stammering second son of George V (Michael Gambon) who ascended to the throne when his brother abdicated. We get the triumph, frankly, without much of the real struggle, but director Tom Hooper and his actors do their best to make sure we don’t care about anything other than what they give us. Grade: A-.
