On Sept. 13, Collin College’s Auteur Film Series will show "The King’s Speech," which was crowned with four Oscars in 2011, including best motion picture, director, actor in a leading role and writing.
The free screening is open to the public and begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 at the Angelika Film Center, 7205 Bishop Road in Plano. The film is rated PG-13.
The film centers on Prince Albert unexpectedly becoming King George VI -- and his struggle to overcome a lifelong stutter and the misperception that he is not fit to be king. He works with an unconventional speech therapist in order to make a crucial radio broadcast after Britain declares war on Germany in 1939.
"The King’s Speech" stars Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter.
The 2012-2013 Auteur Film Series supports Collin College's core values of learning, creativity and involvement by engaging students through film and discussion. Each film will be followed by a panel discussion led by Collin College faculty and staff. All screenings are free and open to the public. Doors open 30 minutes before the film begins. Seating is limited.
Other films scheduled to be screened as part of the series include "Bonnie and Clyde," "To Kill A Mockingbird" and "Citizen Kane."
