Hollywood addresses stuttering in the King's Speech
The King's Speech, released in November 2010, tells the story of King George VI, who had a severe stuttering problem and never intended to become king, and his speech therapist Lionel Logue. This is the first movie to feature a main character with a stuttering problem and the speech therapy undergone.
