THE KING'S SPEECH is a drama in which King George VI employs an Australian speech therapist with unconventional methods to help him overcome a stammer.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k'). The uses occur in two isolated outbursts as part of a technique encouraged by a therapist designed to ease the effects of a man's speech impediment.

There are frequent scenes of smoking, partly due to erroneous medical advice relating to the treatment of speech impediments. The smoking is not shown to be glamorous or advisable.
