Even ignoring the blatant stylistic plagiarism, what is this tagline supposed to be telling us about The King’s Speech other than the fact that it’s literally about a King? In what way is God ‘saving’ the King? Are they implying that Geoffrey Rush’s speech therapist character is the human embodiment of a higher power? Was it God who taught him that trick with the record player?

I THINK NOT.
