It's been awhile since I've talked about movies on the blog, so here are my February films.
The World's Fastest Indian
I rewatched this film starring Anthony Hopkins. It's one of those films if you catch on TV, you can't help but watch. It's based on a true story of Burt Munro who at 68 travelled from New Zealand to the US with his Indian motorcycle to race at Bonneville Salt Lakes for Speed Week...and the rest as they say is history.
And what a character Burt was. I loved watching his journey to Bonneville and how everyone fell in love with him.
The King's Speech
Loved this movie and since I watched it has gone on to win the Best Picture and the Best Male Actor in a Leading Role at the Oscars.
Colin Firth is absolutely fantastic in his role and I really felt for 'Bernie', a man who ended being the King (King George VI) of the British Empire when he was the second son, who had been picked on because of his stutter. I also loved the interplay between him and Lionel (Geoffrey Rush's character), and of course him and his wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), and how he was with his children.
Stunning work all round. And my mum enjoyed it too!
