A good, well-made historical biopic that stands out for a luxury cast that does not have a single flaw - notwithstanding the excessive overacting of Timothy Spall in the role of Churchill. [Full review in Spanish]
Of course, the film has its sentimental touches... but the film goes further... it's a fable about friendship, or rather, about loneliness that can be felt by even the most important person in an Empire. [Full review in Spanish]
David Seidler, who wrote the screenplay, clearly did his homework, and the script is rich with dialogue uttered by the royal prototypes. Though he takes artistic license with certain facts, most such liberties are acceptable.
Tom Hooper's film is a handsomely made, well-acted story that, for the most part, wins hearts by transforming a potentially mega-watt historical story into a low-key dramedy and mismatched buddy movie.
