Colin Firth plays George, the father of Britain's Queen Elizabeth. His elder brother, Edward, the Prince of Wales, is in line for the throne, and George—or Bertie, as he is known to his family—is hobbled by a painful stutter and is deeply conflicted about public life. His sure knowledge that he will never reign is upset when Edward's shocking liaison with a Baltimore divorcée alters the line of succession. Not merely a lusciously creamy Masterpiece Theatre-style history lesson, David Seidler's screenplay has a satisfyingly hesitant arc. Bertie isn't steadily and miraculously cured. The royals are portrayed as deeply out of touch with their subjects. And the past inevitably evokes the current state of the monarchy. The best reason to see the film is a simple one: Firth and Rush clearly love acting together, and their pleasure is contagious.
