Storyline

Plot Summary

In 2012, having been lost for over 500 years, the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a carpark 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. THE LOST KING is the life-affirming true story of a woman who refused to be ignored and who took on the country's most eminent historians, forcing them to think again about one of the most controversial kings in England's history.

Trivia There was some mild controversy prior to this films' UK release when several people involved in the archaeological dig gave interviews to some UK newspapers (notably The Guardian and Daily Mail) disputing the events depicted in the film and accused the scriptwriters of romanticizing and overplaying the role of Philippa Langley ( as played by Sally Hawkins) in the actual locating and discovery of Richard III's resting place. This criticism prompted the film's producer, co-writer and co-star Steve Coogan to give an interview to the BBC defending the story-line of the film and accusing the University of Leicester of trying to discredit the role Langley played in the discovery and believing that, despite Langley being an amateur, they were embarrassed she had out-thought several of their renowned historical experts and they were not happy that this was portrayed within the film.

Goofs Philippa Langley's ex-husband and two sons go to a local cinema to see the James Bond 007 movie SKYFALL, before King Richard III's body was exhumed in September 2012. However the London première of SKYFALL was on the 23rd of October 2012. See more »
