It was indeed. I lost count of how many times I've gone to the movies to see it (stopped keeping track after three).

This was an exceptional movie. I rarely want to see a movie a second or third time but this was one of the rare ones. I think Colin Firth is outstanding even if he hardly resembles George VI.

One point of interest for anyone who cares... Michael Gambon (of the Harry Potter films) plays George V in this movie; in 2003 he played Edward VII in "The Lost Prince", father of George V!! This I found very amusing and ironic.

It went with the scene. The man was angry and frustrated, so he swore.
I wonder if that scene, in which he swore, actually happened.I wonder what the Queen, who might have saw the film,thought of it too!

We know that the Queen wouldn't care - she is on record earlier in her career when she was to watch a show and people were concerned about what one of the show's stars might say. Her comment was along the lines of: 'Let him say what he likes. I am the daughter of a sailor and married to a sailor'.

I am sure that she is fully aware that her father would, on occasions, swear - just like her husband.

Yes exactly- and the movie is such a sympathetic, lovely portrait of her parents that I'm sure the Queen loved it. William said publicly that he loved it, and I doubt he'd have done that had the Queen been angry about the way her father was portrayed.

It's no secret that George VI had a temper and when feeling under pressure or frustrated could let fly.
It was probably a healthier option than bottling it up.

I watched the film a few days ago. Performances by Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush were impressive. I was not impressed by Ms. Bonham Carter's performance. Costumes were great. The portrayal was quite sugary.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. A top effort with stunning wardrobes and sets.

Did anybody find the DoY/Queen Elizabeth condescending and arrogant in this movie? I've only seen it once a year ago but I remember scenes where she came off very "I'm royalty you're not".

Oh I don't think there is any doubt that she knew her station in life. She was brought to know her place in the world and marrying the Duke of York and becoming "royal" wouldn't have made that much difference to her at all. After all, he was only "the spare" when she married him and they did not live a particularly public life.
