It’s 1936. As the world stands on the brink of war, King Edward VIII has abdicated for the love of Wallis Simpson. Bertie, his brother who has previously shied away from the public eye because of a terrible stammer, is to be crowned King George VI of England. With the support of his wife Elizabeth (the future much-loved Queen Mother), Bertie meets Maverick Australian speech therapist and failed actor, Lionel Logue, at an office in Harley Street. This is the true and heart-warming story of one man’s struggle to overcome his disability and, in his country’s darkest hour, deliver the now iconic speech broadcast across the globe to inspire his people.
