Meanwhile, 'The Lost King' is a comedy-drama from Stephen Frears, starring Sally Hawkins as a woman who forced academics and scholars to rethink everything they knew about one of the most controversial kings in British history.

Other first highlights include 'The Banshees Of Inisherin', a twisted tale of friendship gone awry; 'Emily', a haunting drama delivering a tale of desire and creativity in 19th century England; 'Fisherman's Friends 2: One And All', the hilarious, heartfelt follow-up to the 2019 hit; and festival favourite Bill Nighy stars in life affirming drama 'Living', a tale of a terminally ill man searching for meaning.
