Must-see movie

The movies have not been that great this year, but Doris and I saw an excellent one last night.  The King's Speech tells the story of George VI, a reluctant king, who stammered so much, he could hardly be understood.
Public speaking was torture both for him and for the audience.  His wife found him a speech therapist who cured him of the problem, helped him see the reasons for his stuttering, and became his friend.  Colin Firth, who plays the king should get an Oscar.  Geoffrey Rush who playes the teacher should too.  Why can't all movies be thoughtful, entertaining, and just plain good???

I remember seeing pictures of George VI and his wife during World War II.
