'The King's Speech': TV movie or cinematic achievement?
One of the knocks on The King’s Speech (at least among some EW.com commenters) is that the story feels like it belongs on the BBC or HBO rather than in movie theaters. So when I sat down with director Tom Hooper and costar Geoffrey Rush recently, I asked them what they think about that criticism. Hooper’s answer surprised me. Check out Part 2 and 3 of my interview with the pair, in which we discuss the now-famous first day of shooting, when they knew they had a winner on their hands, and what role Hooper wanted Rush to play in his John Adams miniseries.
