It was so neat to see Queen Elizabeth portrayed as a young girl, and it seems to me that they found someone with a striking resemblance if my memory of actual pictures from the past are accurate. And having visited some of those locations in London added a special touch as well. But in the end it was the relationship between these two men that had the greatest impact on me - one minute I was laughing uproariously and the next I was choked up with tears. There are some amazing lines in this film.
I would be interested in hearing a younger person's opinion of The King's Speech. I understand how it attracts the older crowd and to be honest I sure don't mind attending movies with seniors - no goofing around/chatter, and some heartfelt applause at the end (of course I joined in).
