The Lost King (2022). The Lost King: Directed by Stephen Frears. With Sally Hawkins, Shonagh Price, Helen Katamba, Lewis Macleod. An amateur historian defies the stodgy academic establishment in her efforts to find King Richard III's remains, which were lost for over 500 years.
“I went to see this movie on a whim not knowing much about it at all. I vaguely remembered the story appearing in the news some years ago. Sally Hawkins turns in a moving performance as Philippa Langley. The inclusion of her u0026quot;visionsu0026quot; of Kind Richard could have been badly handled but here it lends both humour and pathos and its a nice touch. This movie was an unexpected pleasure and brought a tear to my eye more than once. Philippau0026#39;s passion is inspiring and this is as much a story of the woman herself as it is about the discovery of Kind Richard.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is clear that the writers take much creative licence with the story, which appears to take place in a matter on months but no doubt took years of research in reality. This kind of thing is to be expected with any dramatisation of reality. Iu0026#39;m sure the University of Leicester will have a lot more issue with the creative licence taken than I do as they donu0026#39;t come out of it looking at all good! However, the story is told from the perspective of Philippa Langley, and having since watched some real footage following the discovery of King Richards remains, it is clear to see she was sidelined and undermined and so it is nice to see her side of the story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRecommended!!”
