Film - The Lost King

The Lost King

If you're looking for a cool escape during our Australian hot spell, why not escape to the cinema and lose yourself in The Lost King, a brilliant movie, starring Sally Hawkins, Steve Coogan and Harry Lloyd?

Based on a true story, The Lost King is about King Richard III and how his remains were lost for over 500 years.

In 2012 the remains of the monarch were discovered beneath a car park in Leicester.

The search had been orchestrated by an amateur historian, Philippa Langley, superbly played by Sally Hawkins.

Philippa's unrelenting research had been met with incomprehension by her friends and family and with scepticism by experts and academics.

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 now screening at selected cinemas.
