      David Seidler beautifully wove the complexities of the human condition with laughter, heartache and even madness - all for the sake of storytelling. The British-American film and television writer made his mark in Hollywood with biopics like "Tucker: The Man and His Dream" (1988) and period dramas that allowed audiences in on the lives of extraordinary people, whether members of the Royal Family, successful entrepreneurs, or adoptive parents fighting for custody. In 2010, Seidler, who suffered from a stuttering condition as a child, wrote "The King's Speech." The critically acclaimed film was based on King George VI (Colin Firth) - the successor to the royal throne who also stuttered - and the eccentric speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush) who had helped the king triumph over his disability. The film was a deeply personal story that Seidler had waited his entire life to tell and one that put him on the map as one of the most prolific screenwriters of his generation.
