But I want to get back to Geoffrey Rush. For the part of Lionel Logue, he was nominated for an Academy Award, and I for one am really disappointed he did not get it. He is simply marvellous as Lionel! His face is most expressive, and he depicts this rather quirky characters so richly that I immediately wanted to find out more about him.
To my shame, I only remember Geoffrey Rush from Shine and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies (where he is one of my favorite characters). I have since found out he was also in Elizabeth and Shakespeare in Love, from which I should have recalled him. Well, after his performance in The King’s Speech, I will definitely keep an eye out for his next movies!
Have you seen The King’s Speech? What did you think of it, and especially of Geoffrey Rush?
