The King's Peach

A feel good movie about a historical figure that is against the Nazis? No wonder this won an Oscar!

The plot is... you know what? Go read a history book. Although David Seidler had to craft this into a two hour movie, this is just hitting the beats that history already knows. Boy meets boy, boy becomes king, boy still needs boy... it is, as I said, a 'feel good' movie.

The reason that the movie works as well as it does is due to the actors. Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helen Bonham Carter are superb in this, bringing the characters to life in a way fitting for the characters but also being able to make them connectable with the audience.

Basically, more watchable than you might think...
