A film poster showing two men framing a large, ornate window looking out onto London. Colin Firth, on the left, is wearing as naval uniform as King George VI, staring at the viewer. Geoffrey Rush, on the right, is wearing a suit and facing out the window, his back to the reader. The picture is overlaid with names and critical praise for the film.The King’s Speech, 2010 (Cast-Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter       Grade B
