Overall, the movie is historically accurate. It does show the modern viewer the importance of the treatment given to the King for his speech impediment. This movie also captures the real sense of anxiety in Britain in the 1930s and it broadly captures the historical context of the Coronation of George VI. The relationship between Logue and the monarch is also largely accurate. However, this is a movie and the need to entertain means that there are some inaccuracies, especially with regard to details such as the treatment of the king. However, when compared to other historical dramas the movie is very realistic.
