    • Synopsis
    • The true story of the man who would become King George VI (the current Queen's father) and the unorthodox speech therapist who helped him to the throne. Hindered by a nervous stutter, 'Bertie' Windsor lived his early life away from the public eye, only to be thrown into the spotlight as a result of his brother's abdication.
      Terrified by his inability to be a public king, Bertie turned to Australian Lionel Logue. The script explores a real turning point in British history through the story of one man's need to be heard.
