The kicker was that this King George VI had a stuttering problem and had to handle a bunch of public announcements as well as radio speeches. You really start feeling for this guy after you get a bird's eye view into his royal life and the amount of pressure placed on him.
The acting by all 3 primaries was great. It's hard to believe that Helena Bonham Carter was the same chick in Sweeney Todd; makes me chuckle just thinking about it. But yeah the great acting mixed with the realistic story makes for a very satisfying watch.
