A pre-release screening of one of the season’s sure-to-be sneak hits.

See and discuss it afterwards only at Talk Cinema with film critic Harlan Jacobson.

In the archaeological find of a century, the remains of King Richard III — presumed scattered over 500 years ago — were discovered under a parking lot in Leicester in 2012. The search was spearheaded by amateur historian Philippa Langley, whose passion and unrelenting research were met with skepticism by the academic establishment.

Directed by two-time Oscar® nominee Stephen Frears (The Queen, “A Very English Scandal”) and starring two-time Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins (TheShape of WaterSpencer) as Langley, The Lost King is the story of a woman who took on Britain’s most eminent historians, forcing them to rethink thelegacy of one of the most controversial rulers in English history.

A tale of discovery, obsession, and stolen glory (both then and now), The Lost King is a magical adventure illuminated by one woman’s awakened sense of purpose.

Talk Cinema, Inc., co-founded in 1992 by Harlan and Susan Jacobson, is the nation’s most inclusive and longest running sneak preview and discussion program with thousands of attendees in 12 major U.S. metropolitan areas.
