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 (The Queen, “A Very English Scandal”) and starring two-time Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water, Spencer) 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. [IFC]

"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.'"

— Owen Gleiberman, Variety

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

— Collider

"Stephen Frears’s direction is agile, sly and entertaining as ever. Like all his films, it’s innately subversive of authority, sympathetic to the outsider, relishing peculiarity."

— David Sexton, New Statesman

"The 81-year-old Frears, who has enjoyed an illustrious career, once again achieves excellent work, the performances are impeccable, and this story of a lost King proves to be a riveting yarn."

— David Stratton, The Australian

"A warm, wryly amusing account of a real-life story, a crowd-pleasing portrait of the kind of enthusiastic amateur who proves enduringly popular with British cinema; and, indeed, British audiences."

— Wendy Ide, Screen International
