Loosing the King's Speech
No matter how fictionalized this account, it speaks powerfully of the relationships that make leadership creative, thoughtful and accessible. There's the speech therapist. There's the king's wife--a keen example of partnership, humor and support. In the end, his ability to lead the nation in a time of war is enhanced beyond measure--by these and other relationships.
But it's Geoffrey' Rush's speech therapist I'm most fond of. His humility, strength, audacity, kindness.
As an example of leadership, friendship, accompaniment, he's a hugely inspiring figure. Even one you and I might recognize in one another. And he's worth the trip to a large-screen theatre.
