and then, in other king-themed thoughts, is the most fabulous film i've seen in a bit (and, if you know me, you know i see a lot of movies): the king's speech. colin firth + helena bonham carter + geoffrey rush = amazing. truly a remarkable film about a part of british history i knew nothing of. it's a really beautiful story with so many great actors and actresses peppered throughout in all size roles. it's opening soon in the UK - opened in the US first for some reason - and when i get back to london, i'm planning on seeing it again. it's gorgeous. do go see it if you can.
beauty for your ears and for your eyes. lots of kingly things. i highly recommend them both.
