Review: The King's Speech

The King's Speech is pure Oscar bait.  Here we have it, ready, set, go: a film not only about the British monarchy, but also featuring wartime, inspirational storytelling, costume pieces, and obstacle disability delivered by a host of actors who already receive that little "Oscar nominee/winner" official title each time their name is listed in a trailer.  At first glance, there's nothing tremendously novel about The King's Speech.  It's a 'lessons learned' type of film about human shortcomings.  Just a gentle little drama built up around a crippling stammer.  Of course, first glances count for naught here...
