If you haven't seen the film of the season, The Kings Speech yet (or even if you have) tonight's screening at FACT is not to be missed! 

Documenting the incredible but little-known friendship between King George VI (Colin Firth) and the speech therapist who cured him of a debilitating stammer (Geoffrey Rush), Hooper's (The Damned United) film is at once an odd-couple comedy, an affectionate biopic and a stirring period piece illuminating a turbulent era of British history. 

Colin Firth - who received a Golden Globe for his performance and is tipped for an Oscar nomination - will be taking part in a live Q&A via satellite following the screening tonight! He will be joined by Helena Bonham Carter and the film's director Tom Hooper.
