the king’s speech

adam simpson & the baftas

i don’t know how i hadn’t seen these until now. adam simpson was commissioned to do an interpretation of the five best film nominees for the brochure artwork of this year’s BAFTAS (which was on 13 february) – um, WOW!

the king’s speech

i watched the king’s speech this weekend and unsurprisingly loved every minute of it. colin firth is as good (great) as everyone says he is, geoffrey rush is always brilliant and helena bonham carter is flipping delightful. the set design & colour palette throughout the film is also quite mesmerizing – lionel logue’s office in particular. if this movie doesn’t win every single award it will (hopefully) get nominated for at the oscars, it’ll be a damn shame.

also look out for jennifer ehle (lizzie from the bbc production of pride & prejudice) as geoffrey rush’s wife!

be sure to read my post about king george & elizabeth, i love them even more now after watching this.
