"The King's Speech"
Nice but dim royal with a speech impediment unexpectedly becomes king after his equally dim, charismatic but not-so-nice elder brother falls for sinister American adventuress. It is a well-made and enjoyable film, featuring some further insights into the life of one of the world's great dysfunctional families, but there is always a something a bit reactionary about this kind of drama.
And this is another short review for Frank's APA. I would like at some stage to develop this a bit more, as suggesting that a film about the royal family has reactionary overtones does make me sound like I am about to grow a beard, change my name to Daithí and join Ógra Sinn Féin Phoblachtach.
