The Lost King

British director Stephen Frears helms this feel-good account - set in Edinburgh and Leicester - of the woman who initiated an ambitious archaeological project to recover Richard III’s body. British actress Sally Hawkins is a delight as the unflappable Phillippa, while Richard III comes alive thanks to a charming performance from the UK’s Harry Lloyd.





Amateur historian Philippa Langley (Sally Hawkins), frustrated by her job and looking for an outlet, spearheads a search for the remains of King Richard III. Despite the scepticism and misogyny of the academic community, and the bemusement of her family, Phillippa pursues her gut instincts, with a little help from Richard (Harry Lloyd) himself to make a staggering discovery.
