Stunning... Everyone with a heart must watch this
on 26 January 2003
I am a sixteen year old male and crying when watching a movie is very much a rarity for me but I'm quite happy to admit that I was extremely tearful at the very ending, which I won't spoil for those who may not yet have watched it but will say that it was beautifully done and anyone who is not at least touched by it clearly are incapable of compassion.
This film touched me on a number of levels and I felt myself connecting to many of the characters and relating them, which I'm sure everyone is likely to find. Every character was very well acted, if not necessarily accurately portrayed in every case.
Also it is true that a very important part of history is included (World War One) and this will definitely interest many historians who I'm sure will be able to point out numerous inacuracies but to me this does not matter a bit. In many ways it will always be fiction like almost every other movie we've seen because it was only a movie... second hand evidence and about a Prince who was clearly hidden so well that the exact true story of his life is something we'll never really know. What touched me was the stories, which are (I hope) true... About a loving brother and a devoted maid and the Prince who just happened to be "different". There was so much love in that story, it's unbelievable... Also, Prince John's brother's last words about him at the end of the film really sum up his life as it was portrayed in The Lost Prince... Again, I won't spoil it but to find out those words you'll have to watch it! And you definitely should as soon as you can...
