The King’s Speech
DVD ($29.95)

After the death of his father and the scandalous abdication of the throne by his brother, England’s newly crowned King George VI faces the challenges of rallying his country on the brink of World War II—and also suffers from a lifelong speech impediment. This inspiring true story about how the British monarch overcame his stammer brought home four top Academy Awards earlier this year and far-flung acclaim for its standout performances from Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter. Special DVD features include audio commentary, a making-of documentary and archival footage of the real-life King George VI.
