Really enjoyed this movie. Go see it. They kept off the Aussie bashing except for one brief (and funny) line.

Great movie.

I saw the film last week and would love to see it again. It’s my new favourite movie of al time. Firth and Rush deserve every award they will get for this film.

I would say, however, that as someone who spent a few years being treated for a stutter and a lisp as a child here in Canberra in the mid 1970’s I found some parts of the movie confronting and extremely moving. But again, this reaction only attests to the films beauty and realism.

A nice film indeed. Didn’t think I’d love it, but found it really touching.

This is a brilliant movie. One of the few I’ve seen where the audience applauded at the end.

I’ll be there. Y’all should come, so we can tell you how we actually deal with stuttering these days 🙂
