When his brother abdicates the throne, George ‘Bertie’ VI – Queen Elizabeth II’s father – reluctantly becomes King.

However, George suffers from a terrible nervous stammer which, many consider, makes him unfit to take the crown. Determined to overcome his problem, Bertie hires the services of an unorthodox speech therapist called Lionel Logue.

As they work together, Lionel and Bertie strike an unlikely friendship and the new King discovers his true voice.
