Synopsis

Overworked and overlooked at her job due to her chronic fatigue syndrome, Philippa Langley is struggling to find meaning in her life. After taking her son to a production of Shakespeare’s Richard III, she finds herself becoming slowly fascinated with the former King of England, forming a strange kinship with him across time and space. As she delves further into his life, and discovers the discrimination that he, like her, also faced due to his supposed disability, Philippa comes to believe she may have found the final resting place of The Lost King, a holy grail for historians the world over. However, when she attempts to present these findings to professionals, she is met with disparagement and arrogance, forcing her to forge her own path towards uncovering Richard’s remains and finally bringing his truth to the public. Based on an incredible true story that created headlines in 2012, when the remains of Richard III were discovered underneath a car park in Leicester, The Lost King is also a tale of perseverance with a fantastic focus on how history is an ever-evolving narrative.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
