7 Movies that encourage kids to break the mold (in the best of ways)

The King’s Speech (R, 2010)

Prince Albert never planned on being king. He neither wanted it, nor did he think he’d be particularly good at it. Saddled with a speech impediment, Albert’s not the guy you want giving speeches. But when his brother, Edward VIII, abdicates the throne, Albert has no choice: He must assume the royal office as King George VI, shoulder the responsibilities of leading Great Britain in wartime and make, in 1939, the speech of his life. Despite his stammer and his unassuming manner, George becomes one of British history’s most beloved monarchs. A word about the R-rating: Take it seriously, but outside using a flurry of f-words in one scene — part of a technique he’s taught to rid himself of his stammer — the movie might well be rated PG. (The movie drops on Netflix today.)
