Luc Besson (Angel-A, The Fifth Element) directs Michelle Yeoh and David Thewlis in The Lady, an epic love story set in Burma and based on true events.
The Plot:
The Lady is the extraordinary story of Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband, Michael Aris. It is also the story of the peaceful quest of the woman who is at the core of Burma‟s democracy movement. Despite distance, long separations, and a dangerously hostile regime, their love endures until the very end. Its a story of devotion and human understanding set against a backdrop of political turmoil that continues today.
The Lady was written over a period of three years by Rebecca Frayn. Interviews with key figures in Aung San Suu Kyi’s entourage enabled her to reconstruct for the first time the true story of Burma’s national heroine.
