Looking forward to

The King's Speech directed by Tom Hooper, starring Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, and Geoffrey Rush won the People's Choice Award at this year's Toronto Film Festival.

This seems like one of those semi-epic, kind of serious but with a dry wit, slightly romantic, a bit inspirational, Best Picture-nominated but don't win, and, ultimately, highly polished and well-directed films. Think The Young Victoria, Atonement, An Education, The Reader, The Queen, Finding Neverland, and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Funny that they are all British films.
