Additionally, Dr. King describes the problem that is still present at his time. He mentions back to the documents when the country starts a new government.

The general vision or viewpoint (GVV) of a text relates to the authorial/directorial outlook on life which inevitably influences our perspective on the narrative and the world in which it is set. The vision of an author can be conveyed through the manner in which the plot opens, develops and ends, through characterisation and relationships, the type of society in which the text is located and also through the symbols. Often, the dominant viewpoint of a text can be reflected in a significant event. I agree with the above statement, although the general vision and viewpoint is portrayed by the author/director, it is also the audiences attitude and interpretation that help to clarify the general vision and viewpoint of a text whether it is optimistic or pessimistic. The general vision and viewpoint of “The King’s Speech” (TKS), a film directed by Tom Hooper, is essentially positive and optimistic.

For example, the phases such as “One hundred years later”, “Now is the time…”, “We must…”, “We can never be satisfied…”, “Go back to… were repeated several times during his speech. This really delivered his message by making the audience interested in following his words. Even when ending his speech, he did not forget to repeat the phrase “I have a dream”.
