Lost Empires is a powerful and evocative recreation of the dying days of the music hall circuit. Adrift in the world, young Richard Herncastle (Colin Firth) is taken on by his formidable Uncle Nick, a top of the bill magician working under the 'exotic' name of Ganga Dun. Richard finds himself immersed in the dusty glamour of a life onstage introducing him to comedians, dancers, musicians, jugglers, singers and women, beautiful, talented, tempting women.
Featuring a superb cast, including Laurence Olivier, gripping in one of his last performances as a comic past his prime, and Pamela Stephenson as a beautiful Siren beckoning Richard to the rocks, Lost Empire captures the fading magic and constant upheaval of a life on the road with its glamorous theatres and dour boarding houses; the smell of more than just greasepaint, the roar of more than just the crowd.
