I think the film has its integrity as it stands. I think that scene belongs where it is. I think it serves a purpose. I’m not someone who is casual about that kind of language. I take my children to see football games, and I wouldn’t be able to if I wanted to protect them from those kind of words, at the expense of all else. I hate hearing that language around them, but I’m not going to deny them the experience of a live game. It does distress me to hear that language bawled into the ears of my kids, so I don’t take this stuff lightly, but in the context of this film it could not be more edifying, more appropriate. It’s not vicious, it’s not to do with insult or in any of the contexts which might offend people, really. It’s about a man trying to free himself through the use of forbidden words. And he’s so coy about it. I still haven’t met the person who would object to it, so I think the film should stand as it is. | Colin Firth on the cut cussing scene from The King’s Speech to gain a PG-13 rating.
