A very funny account of some movie exercise performed in “ the King speech” about the true story about King George VI (played by Colin Firth) speech impediment or stammer reach paralyzed any public speaking engagements.
After exhausting all possibilities with conventional speech therapist King George VI wife (played by Helena Bonham Carter) finds and unorthodox therapist called Bob [played by Lionel Logue (played by Geoffrey Rush ).
Strangely before the commencement of shooting the film, some actual historical documents from Bob were found giving actual insights into the practices used by Bob in achieving successful outcomes.
A big part of his treatment involves having a patient undergo physical exercise and some fairly strange activities as documented in the movie.
Such as a person sitting on the patient’s chest while the patient inhales and exhales.
The reason behind these is to improve the strength of the patient’s diaphragm which in turn helps with the exhaling through the throat and larynx.
