About this deal

In 2012, having been lost for over 500 years, the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a car park in Leicester. The search had been orchestrated by an amateur historian, Philippa Langley, whose unrelenting research had been met with incomprehension by her friends and family and with scepticism by experts and academics. Lee Ingleby as Richard Taylor; the deputy registrar from the University of Leicester who is portrayed as being initially obstructive and dismissive of Langley's project, but who later is an enthusiastic supporter, and who omits Langley from the press conference announcing the results to the world.

As this is a true story, you can readily find out how her journey went. But what any news articles WON'T show you is how this journey became an obsession that ruled Philippa's life for so long. And how she had to fight not only a patriarchy, but a patriarchy full of particularly disagreeable academic snobs. It's a journey of her empowerment, which culminates in a few moments that make you want to just stand up and applaud.

The Lost King DVD & Blu-ray Release Date: When was the film released?

Winners and Nominations · BIFA · British Independent Film Awards". BIFA · British Independent Film Awards. 2022-11-03. Archived from the original on 2023-01-29 . Retrieved 2023-07-18. Rubin, Rebecca (10 August 2022). "IFC Films Buys 'The Lost King' Ahead of Toronto Film Festival Debut". Variety. Archived from the original on 11 August 2022 . Retrieved 12 August 2022. This movie is full of moments of very British humor. Everyone is perhaps a bit wittier than real life, but virtually every character has a little room to breathe. Coogan is good in a role that calls for him to be largely unlikeable, yet keep us at least marginally on his side. It's a quiet film that nonetheless moves forward with nice momentum.
