In the archaeological find of a century, the remains of King Richard III — presumed scattered over 500 years ago — were discovered under a parking lot in Leicester in 2012. The search was spearheaded by amateur historian Philippa Langley, whose passion and unrelenting research were met with skepticism by the academic establishment. Directed by Oscar-nominee Stephen Frears (The Queen) and starring Oscar-nominee Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) as Langley, and Steve Coogan (The Trip) as Langley’s confused but supportive ex-husband, The Lost King is the inspiring true story of a woman who refused to be ignored and took on Britain’s most eminent historians, forcing them to rethink the legacy of one of the most controversial rulers in English history. A tale of discovery, obsession, and stolen glory (both then and now), The Lost King is a charming adventure that proves it sometimes takes a unique person to fix the errors of the past. (Dir. by Stephen Frears, 2022, UK, 108 mins., Not Rated)
