'The King's Speech' Premiered at London Film Festival
After making its way from one to another film festival in the U.S., "The King's Speech" has finally landed in England. The movie took part at the 54th BFI London Film Festival, being premiered at Odeon Leicester Square on Thursday, October 21.
Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter, who portray a royal family, made their red carpet appearances that night, joined by the depicter of the king's speech therapist, Geoffrey Rush. Both actors played safe with their suits, while the actress looked chic in a Vivienne Westwood tartan-bodiced dress and a black silk full skirt.
Firth tagged along his wife Livia Giuggioli on the red carpet, while Carter got support from her filmmaker lover Tim Burton. Other celebrity couples at the "King's Speech" U.K. premiere were Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes as well as Ben Kingsley and wife Daniela Lavender, who were all coming as guests.
"The King's Speech" revolves around King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II, who reluctantly assumes the throne after his brother abdicates. The film focuses on his efforts to overcome a nervous stammer with the help of speech therapist Lionel Logue.
This Tom Hooper-directed drama was dubbed People's Choice at the 35th Annual Toronto International Film Festival and has been thrown as possible Oscar contender. The movie will grace limited U.S. theaters on November 26.
