9 THE KING’S SPEECH (2010)

New Straits Times - - Groove -

Bon­ham Carter plays El­iz­a­beth, Duchess of York, who would later be­come Queen El­iz­a­beth, in this Tom Hooper-di­rected his­tor­i­cal drama. It fol­lows the Duke of York, the fu­ture King Ge­orge VI, who en­gages the ser­vices of an Australian speech and lan­guage ther­a­pist to over­come his de­bil­i­tat­ing stam­mer.

Since Bon­ham Carter was also film­ing Harry Pot­ter And The Deathly Hal­lows (Parts 1 and 2 in 2010 and 2011), the pro­duc­tion had to be re­worked around her sched­ule. She won a Bafta for Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tress and was nom­i­nated for an Os­car in the same cat­e­gory.
