King’s Speech

I always thought the film should be called  “The King’s Speech Therapist .”

Geoffrey Rush, on the Today Show 2011 Feb 07 while being interviewed for his masterful role in The King’s Speech

The persuasive element is reformed cliché-esque. The actual title of the big picture drama is The King’s Speech, but the movie is more about Geoffrey’s character who is a speech therapist specializing in “speech defects.”  Because the title isn’t really a cliché, it’s not really a reformed cliché, thus the “-esque. (which is French for “-ish!” :) )”

Thanks to Today.MSNBC.MSN.com for posting their easy-to-use clip & share video and transcript of the interview.
