The Lost King
UK, Feature Film, 2022, 108 min
In this inspiring true story, amateur historian Philippa Langley believes she has made the archeological find of the century: the lost burial site of King Richard III. But her passion and unrelenting research are met with skepticism by the academic establishment. The Lost King is a magical adventure that tells the true story of a woman who refused to be ignored, took on Britain’s most eminent historians, and forced them to rethink the legacy of one of the most controversial rulers in English history. Directed by two-time Oscar-nominee Stephen Frears (The Queen, A Very English Scandal) and starring two-time Oscar-nominee Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water, Spencer) as Langley.
