more movies, distressed walls and gold

 

The King’s Speech is an inspiring tale, laced with wit, and beautifully captured on film. It tells the story of how King George VI (Bertie / Colin Firth) overcame a debilitating stammer, with the assistance of an unconventional Australian elocution teacher, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). The settings are regal and the Harley Street consultation room of Logue is stunning with sparse elegance and cialis daily use price distressed walls.

Bertie’s wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), later  known as the Queen Mother, having engaged several speech therapists, in desperation turns to Logue, an Australian practitioner from Adelaide, now living in London with his family, whose unorthodox though effective methods have gained him much respect.

The King’s Speech is a fascinating insight into a chapter of English history that has been largely overshadowed by the tumultuous events surrounding it, both King Edward VIII’s abdication, and the outbreak of the second world war. It was filmd in UK locations including Lancaster House, the Bradford Bulls Stadium, Ely Cathedral, Harley Street and Battersea Power Station.

The King’s Speech is in many ways a terrific movie, grand, rich, yet admirably focused and simple. It bids fair to parallel the art house success of Stephen Frears and Peter Morgan’s triumphant The Queen. The writing, by David Seidler, would make a pretty good play. The filmmakers have added things you can’t get onto a stage, even on Broadway — posh black cars inching through thick fog; the ancient grandeur of Westminster Abbey; the royal apartments; Balmoral Castle; and the noble, if unwieldy, accoutrements of early radio. Tariq Anwar has cunningly edited the scene of the final speech to show both Bertie struggling and triumphing and all England listening, soldiers and citizens moved to uphold the dignity of the British Empire…… It”s a rousing tale, one heightened by Alexandre Desplat’s stately selections of classical music and cialis 5 mg canada pharmacy Danny Cohen’s eye-filling images of the magnificent settings.  Chris Knipp

I should have been at Woodford!

 

The Woodford Folk Festival is a summer holiday ritual, and is celebrating the 25th anniversary this year. There are 620 acts across six days, encompassing live music, comedy, cultural activists and environmentalists.

The rain this year means Wellies are mandatory! However, even the thought of justifying the purchase of some trendy mud boots has not enticed me to join the swamp.

I have decided that camping in the rain and mud is not fun ~ I’m not a die-hard Woodford goer! Instead I’ve found a editorial from Vogue UK shot by Mario Testino that I will post next capture the spirit.
