The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

111 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 3,831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The King's Speech" presents a sideways glance at a crucial period in 20th-century history--as the monumentally awkward Prince Albert, or Bertie, becomes King George VI unexpectedly in 1936 when his older brother Edward VIII abdicates to marry American divorcée Wallis Simpson. In imperial Britain between the wars, that was problem enough, but Bertie suffered from a chronic stammer that made his public appearances painful for everyone. In an age of radio, the monarch has become a symbol, which means that the King speaks to his people--regularly. Bertie and his wife, the high-spirited Princess Elizabeth find their way to an Australian-born speech therapist and amateur actor named Lionel Logue. Logue isn't a doctor, has no academic credentials, and is viewed by proper authorities as a charlatan. Oddly enough, each of these men is a desperate misfit badly in need of a new friend and a bit more self-esteem. A real friend, it seems, was exactly the medicine the future king required

Le discours d'un roi The King's speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

D'après une histoire vraie. Dans les années 1930, au Royaume-Uni, le prince Albert, deuxième fils du roi George V, est handicapé par un grave problème de bégaiement. L'abdication de son frère aîné Édouard VIII l'oblige à monter sur le trône sous le nom de George VI. Or le roi doit s'exprimer en public. Sur l'insistance de sa femme, il rencontre Lionel Logue, orthophoniste australien aux méthodes peu orthodoxes. Malgré les réticences du prince, la méthode de Logue fonctionne. Albert doit surmonter ses difficultés de langage pour prononcer, en septembre 1939, le discours radiophonique d'entrée du Royaume-Uni dans la guerre contre l'Allemagne lors de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Le film nous fait connaître une page intéressante de l'histoire d'Angleterre et un moment émouvant de l'entrée dans la Seconde guerre mondiale. Il souligne l'importance de menus concours de circonstances qui peuvent parfois décider de la gouvernance d'un état. Il présente enfin, et principalement, le complexe problème des troubles du langage, et certains des axes qui peuvent être envisagés pour les traiter. Georges VI, modeste et juste, aimant sa famille et s'attachant finalement à son thérapeute, animé d'une volonté farouche pour vaincre son handicap, est un personnage qui inspire la sympathie et l'admiration. Bonus: Making of, l'incroyable histoire d'une amitié improbable , Entretien avec le réalisateur et l'équie du film , Le vrain Lionel Logue , The Stuttering Foundation , Bande-annonce VO

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Duca di York e secondogenito di re Giorgio V, Bertie è afflitto dall'infanzia da una grave forma di balbuzie che gli aliena la considerazione del padre, il favore della corte e l'affetto del popolo inglese. Figlio di un padre anaffettivo e padre affettuoso di Elisabetta (futura Elisabetta II) e Margaret, Bertie è costretto suo malgrado a parlare in pubblico e dentro i microfoni della radio, medium di successo degli anni Trenta. Sostituito il corpo con la viva voce, il Duca di York deve rieducare la balbuzie, buttare fuori le parole e trovare una voce. Lo soccorrono la devozione di Lady Lyon, sua premurosa consorte, e le tecniche poco convenzionali di Lionel Logue, logopedista di origine australiana. Tra spasmi, rilassamenti muscolari, tempi di uscita e articolazioni più o meno perfette, Bertie scalzerà il fratello regneggiante, salirà al trono col nome di Giorgio VI e troverà la corretta fonazione dentro il suo discorso più bello.
