In this inspiring true story, amateur historian Philippa Langley (Sally Hawkins) believes she has made the archeological find of the century: the lost burial site of King Richard III. Langley's unrelenting research had been met with incomprehension by her friends and family and with scepticism by experts and academics—but she carried on, inspired by the spirit of Richard III (brought to life here by Harry Lloyd).
"The Lost King" is the life-affirming true story of a woman who refused to be ignored and who took on the country's most eminent historians, forcing them to think again about one of the most controversial kings in England's history.
"'The Lost King' is a thoroughly entertaining and enlightening film for grownups, and well worth seeing." —Leonard Maltin
