Saturday Pot Luck: Even imagining Colin Firth speaking can make me cry

Lovely Colin

It’s no secret that I have slight penchant for all things Mr. Firth, but my love for The King’s Speech extends beyond that, for such a British film it’s hugely uplifting. So when Raindance Film Festival’s Twitter feed offered a copy of the script to anyone with an interest, I jumped at the chance. This is a fairly regular occurrence, I have previously been sent a PDF of the Drive screenplay, which was absorbing on paper as it was in celluloid.

On opening my most recent acquisition, of course I instantly located the grand final scene, in which our hero overcomes every obstacle to inspire the country to rise up against evil. All I had to do was read a few lines and I was already tearing up…pathetic.

Anyway, if you would like to obtain your own copy, or learn more about Raindance, have a gander at the information below.
