Winner of Best Picture at the Academy Awards, The King's Speech shows how a man becomes king in the years before World War II. Prince Albert seeks a speech therapist to help him overcome a lifelong stutter and build confidence in his monarchal duties. Such skills come in handy when he suddenly becomes King George VI and war looms ahead. Although its portrayal of the king and era is historically accurate, the film's presentation of Churchill and his relationship with the King and their responses to World War II are not, giving the impression of a collaboration toward Nazi Germany.
