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 two-time Oscar-nominee Stephen Frears and starring two-time Oscar-nominee Sally Hawkins as Langley, “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 magical adventure illuminated by one woman’s awakened sense of purpose.

"A perfect vehicle for Hawkins’s reliably winning screen presence." — The Observer

"A historical detective story that carries the kick of a true-life Da Vinci Code." — Variety

"Thanks to Frears’ touch, and Hawkins’ unrelenting and rousing performance, it’s hard not to get won over by The Lost King." — Collider
