It was just announced that Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech has taken the Cadillac People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film, starring Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush was one of five films I gave a grade in the A-range to during the festival. In my review I wrote:
You can read my full review right here. The Weinstein Co. will release The King’s Speech on November 24.
Personally I am still finishing up my Toronto experience and still have some reviews I have yet to publish. I will also be writing up my personal best of, though you can probably figure that out simply by reading my coverage of the festival.
