The King’s Speech

I saw it tonight. Great movie.

I liked the amount of period detail, for sure, but what I really liked was the fantastic structure: every act and scene and beat was just in place. A problem, a new relationship, a breaking of that relationship, an increased crisis that leads to reconciliation. A gradual escalation of stakes until a twist that breaks the relationship again, and then another, bigger crisis, mirroring the earlier one. A climax and victory.

I’ll need to dissect it a bit more, it’s got plenty of meat to chew on.
