|MPAA||Rated R for some language|
Sex & Nudity
- Two characters have a love affair, and there is some discussion about it though nothing is ever shown. One scene has frank discussion about it.
Violence & Gore
- News about Nazi-fueled atrocities is broken, but no gruesome images are shown.
- Almost all language uses (and certainly all uses of strong profanities) are in a therapeutic context. In one scene the therapist is trying to cure his patient's stutter, and he has him get angry and swear. The man swears continuously for about 35 seconds. The scene is somewhat comical, the swear words are not focused on, and it is strictly in a therapeutic context. This scene is the only reason why the film has granted an 'R' rating in America.
- Uses of "fuck" and "shit"
- Anatomical and scatological terms (willies, balls, tits)
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- Men drink casually. There is no immoderate alcohol drinking.
- Some characters, including the main character, smoke. The main character is seen smoking at least 10 times.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- The atmosphere is light and pleasant, even if the prince's initial speech is painful to watch at seeing him so publicly embarrassed. There are also other difficult moments, but nothing disturbing or shocking.
- The King's Speech relates to speech for war
- King George V is shown dead in his bed.
- Many war themes.
