The King's Speech, and Revisionist History

Having just read a SCATHING condemnation of the alternative view of history, portrayed in what is apparently an otherwise good movie, I'm curious about other reactions.

Apparently, Churchill was portrayed erroneously, as was King George (with regard to appeasement policies re: Adolf  you-know-who.) In any case, not having seen the movie, and having no full understanding of British political climate, I'm just curious how those who are more informed by either the movie or history respond.  The original article is at Slate  -

Comment in, tell me what you think!

Have a lovely warm day ;-)
