The King’s Speech

I re-watched The King’s Speech the other day. If you haven’t heard of it, the film is a British historical drama that dramatises the story of King George VI (played by Colin Firth) who underwent treatment with Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue (played by Geoffrey Rush) to deal with a debilitating stammer.

I was really impressed by the care taken in creating the sets and interiors for the film – particularly the amazing textured wall in Lionel Louge’s office. These locations, created by production designer Eve Stewart, added to the atmosphere of the film in a wonderfully subtle way.
