Friday 17th February – The Lost King

(2022: Cert. 12: Comedy Drama: 108 mins: Mild Bad Language)

Doors open 7.30pm / Programme starts 8pm

After having been lost for over 500 years, the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a car park in Leicester in 2012. 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.

Directed by Stephen Frears, the film stars Sally Hawkins, Steve Coogan, Harry Lloyd, James Fleet and Mark Addy.

A warm, wryly amusing account of a real-life story…

Wendy Ide, Screen International“…an underdog story that proves a perfect vehicle for Hawkins’s reliably winning screen presence.”   Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Tickets: £6 from Chorleywood Bookshop, online and at the door if still available.
