Reviews


80
Variety - Owen Gleiberman
A richer, stronger, and more moving piece of work [than Philomena], a historical detective story that carries the kick of a true-life “Da Vinci Code.”
75
TheWrap - Carlos Aguilar
What prevents this life-affirming account from turning boringly saccharine is the caliber of humanity that Hawkins lends Philippa.
70
Screen Daily - Wendy Ide
A winning, if whimsical, account of an ordinary woman achieving the extraordinary.
70
Vanity Fair - Unnamed
One lovely wisp of a movie. ... Offers few surprises but plenty of comfort.
67
Collider - Ross Bonaime
Like so many of Frears’ films, The Lost King works because of the compelling cast on hand.
