"I wanted to invent myself as a fictional character. And I did,
and it has caused a great deal of confusion."

Mr. Right

Cute. Shallow.

The King's Speech

Quite a good film, really, until it fell apart.

Colin Firth, who deserves the Oscar for his performance, embodied his character with subtlety and nuance. Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter were excellent also. It was the writing and direction that flawed this film. At about the 2/3's mark, the pacing slowed down to unbearable and revelations of plot and character disappeared. While truly impressed by Colin Firth and captured by the story, the film making never fully realized what it had begun.
