I saw it last night and loved it. But I was a little dismayed to see how old Geoffrey Rush has grown. He's one of those actors I want to see go on forever. He was certainly spry enough in this movie.

This morning someone told me Colin Firth was a shoo-in for an Oscar for three reasons. One, to compensate for him being passed over for A Single Man last year. Two, it's just been announced that he's getting his star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Three, The King's Speech went into wide release so late in the year that his performance will be fresh in the minds of the voters. The omens are good.
