Abstract [sv]

Det här kandidatarbetet kommer att diskutera karaktärsskildringar och maskuliniteter

inom filmen The King’s Speech. En mans karaktär definieras av dess maskulina drag och

en makthierarki går att hitta, även i film. Vidare kommer det här arbetet försöka komma

fram till vad som gör att vi som publik känner det vi gör när vi tittar på film. Det här

arbetet kommer fokusera på Connells teori om maskuliniteter och vi kommer att

applicera teorin på karaktärerna i filmen The King’s Speech, med protagonisten i fokus.

Vi har enbart valt att gå in på mannen och dess maskulinitet i det här arbetet då vi måste

begränsa arbetet. Vi kommer använda oss av Actor Network Theory (ANT) när vi

analyserar filmen och karaktärer för att urskilja de relevanta aktörerna i vårt nätverk. Vi

har i slutändan dragit bland annat slutsatsen att makthierarkier samt sättet det skildras är

viktigt för att skapa dynamik i film. Vi har även gjort en gestaltande produktion i form av

ett filmmanus. Manuset är inspirerat av protagonisten i The King’s Speech.

Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis will discuss character potrayals and masculinities within the film

The King’s Speech. A man’s character will be defined by his masculine traits and a

power hierarchy can be found, even in film. We will furthermore try to come to an

understanding of what makes us as an audience feel different emotions while we’re

watching films. This thesis will focus on Connells theory concerning masculinities and

we will apply her theory on the different characters in The King’s Speech, but mainly the

protagoninst. We have chosen to only analyze the man and his masculinity because we

need to limit our work. We will use Actor Network Theory (ANT) when interpreting the

film and the charcters, to find the relevant actors in our network. In the end we came to

the conclusion that power hierarchies and the way they are portrayed are crucial to create

dynamics within film. We have also made a interpreting production in the shape of a

screenplay for a film. The screenplay is inspired by the protagonist in The King’s Speech.
