The King's Speech: Toronto Film Festival winner

  • "The King's Speech" won the People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival.

    The Cadillac People's Choice Award is voted on by Festival audiences. This year's award goes to Tom Hooper's The King's Speech (United Kingdom/Australia). The King's Speech  tells the story of King George VI.  After his brother abdicates, George 'Bertie' VI (Colin Firth) reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded nervous stammer and considered unfit to be King, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). The award offers a $15,000 cash prize and custom award, sponsored by Cadillac. Runner-up is Justin Chadwick's First Grader (United Kingdom).
