When Christian Bale accepted his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, his heart was right on his sleeve. His final words were for his child: "And for our little girl, who's taught me so much more then I'll ever be able to teach her."
I am confident that the success The King's Speech achieved Sunday night sets the scene for a year of success in the relationship between our two countries and our people.
