The Lost King (2022)

This   feels very stereotypically English, I'm unsure how other countries would view   this especially if they weren't into history etc. I know our humour   translates well, whilst there are funny moments I'd say it's more of a sweet   film, natural family dynamic with a twist and a woman who's been unfairly   treated as a result of an invisible illness which is very important to get   across. It's very easy to challenge or criticise someone when you don't know   the full picture, to many she seemed crazy, when that was overcome she was   then seen as someone to disrespect and control and exploit. 


There were some   good moving parts here, some things that are very real and common issues in   the UK. Whilst the story is a bit   niche maybe it's one I had some awareness of and found it interesting just   from curiosity. The apparition I thought was a nice twist especially as it   followed the rule of never guiding her with any information she didn't   already know. It's a really   enjoyable film, the brunt of the acting done by Sally who was perfect in   this, the only thing I like to see is bad people get their comeuppance but I   guess it fits that she was above that. Great watch that sadly I'm not sure enough will see until it's on tv.
